A: Norwich’s Corps of Cadets utilizes the United States Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) as its standard of physical fitness upon induction. Events included in the APFT are push-ups, sit-ups and a two-mile run. Upon arriving to campus you should be able to complete the APFT with an overall passing score as well as a passing score in each event.
The physical fitness programs at Norwich are designed to enhance a Cadet’s quality of life and improve productivity. The training includes: calisthenics, running, an obstacle course, forced marches, and basic military skills. These tasks emphasize upper body strength, agility, and cardiovascular endurance. Membership in the Corps is dependent upon successfully performing such challenging physical tests. Our training days begin early and end late. A typical day starts at 0530 hours and ends at 2200 hours. For additional information on life as a Rook click HERE.
Rooks are encouraged to achieve and maintain a high level of physical fitness prior to your arrival at Norwich. Below is the minimum fitness goals expected upon arrival:
Males: 42 push-ups, 53 sit-ups, two-mile run (15:54)
Females: 19 push-ups, 53 sit-ups, two-mile run (18:48)
On Rook Arrival Day, we will conduct an initial diagnostic physical fitness assessment for all incoming recruits. The purpose of this screening is to evaluate each recruit’s ability to perform these exercises. Your goal is to do your best, demonstrate our motto “I Will Try,” and continue to improve.
Should you suffer from any medical condition, sustain an injury or have surgery that might limit your participation in training please contact me by phone (802-485-2135) or email: email@example.com to discuss your unique situation, which might include changing lifestyle or deferring enrollment in the Corps of Cadets.

A: First I would recommend coordinating with your roommate to figure out who will be bringing a television for your room. Once you come to campus you can work with Trans-Video, the local cable provider. You and your roommate will work with them in regards to setting it up, picking your channel listing package, and providing payment for the cable.
A: Beyond what you will wear on arrival day, you will not need to bring civilian clothing with you for your first semester at Norwich. All appropriate clothing and uniforms will be issued to you upon arrival to campus. The only exception is for fall season athletes. If you will be traveling with the team, you will need to bring proper dress attire for travel as recommended by the Athletic Department. If you are a winter or spring athlete, you will have time later in the year to bring up appropriate athletic attire. You may also bring athletic gear to practice in, but only an amount that will fit in your locker in the athletic building.
A: Don't worry, the reason your financial aid awards are pending is because they will not go into effect until you are attending classes. This doesn't mean you are expected to pay the entire bill. You will only be required to pay what you owe after your awards have been subtracted. How will we determine that? That's where the Remittance Form comes in! This form is an outline of all your payment information. It's very simple, but very important!
When you are filling out the Remittance Form, please have your bill and your Financial Aid award letter on hand! Then, start by simply putting your name and A#. Under #1 you will look at your bill for the Total Due and put that in the space. For #2 you will indicate if you are waiving the Student Medical Insurance. Unless you have logged in and completed the Medical Insure Waiver form, you have NOT waived the insurance. (Sending in your insurance card with your medical forms does not count.) For #3 on the Remittance Form, you will put the Total Estimated Financial Aid that can be found on your bill as well.
Finally, it is very important to include the name of the person who may be contacted by the Bursar's Office concerning your tuition fees.
Return this form to the Office of the Bursar at 158 Harmon Drive, Northfield VT 05663.
If you have any questions, please check out the Bursar's Office website where all the information you need to know is located!
A: Civilian students will find out about their roommate(s) 2-3 weeks prior to arriving at Norwich.

You won’t want two televisions, two microwaves, and no phone!
Rooks will receive this information on Arrival Day.

A: If you are a student traveling from outside of New England and New York, you have the option to arrive one day prior to your arrival day (Saturday, August 17th or Tuesday, August 20th). With airline tickets being expensive, we understand that it may be difficult for families to travel with new students to campus.
To ease this burden, we encourage families to send their son/daughter alone for arrival day, and save their trip to campus for parent/family weekend (October18-20th). Please contact the admissions office with any questions regarding this.
A: If you are looking to be a member in one of these units, you will have the chance to try out during your freshman year.

All freshman students are eligible to participate in try-outs. Students interested in the band are encouraged to bring their own instrument if they own one.
