Enrollment Options

Flexibility with a purpose.

Widener knows that every student is different. You each have different responsibilities, different needs, different schedules. We also know that successful students are those whose academic lives fit with the rest of their lives. That’s why we offer a wide range of enrollment options, as well as three convenient campus locations.

Choose the option that works best for you.


  • Evening Programs meet once a week on-campus for about three hours each session. These classes are offered at our Chester, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware campuses.
  • Saturday Studies are seven-week courses that combine in-class instruction with independent study. Class meets for three and a half hours every other Saturday; between class meetings students work on self-study assignments. This option is only available at Widener’s Chester campus.
  • Online Classroom is delivered entirely through Widener’s WebStudy link and offer the greatest flexibility for students. Many General Education requirements are offered via WebStudy and several adult undergraduate majors can be completed entirely on-line. Even better, you can earn the same academic credits as in-class versions of these courses.
  • Accelerated Studies blend traditional on-campus instruction with on-line learning and are offered year-round on all three campuses. The best part? You only have to come to campus once night a week and you can still earn six credits a semester.
