Summer Class Formats
This traditional undergraduate format allows for full-time undergraduate students to take classes during the day at Widener University. Broken down into two summer sessions, students have the opportunity to really dive into courses and earn quite a few credits over the summer months. Day courses are available on the Chester, Pennsylvania campus.
Evening courses allow for the student who needs extra time on a particular subject to ensure their understanding. It works well for students who need the structure of a traditional classroom to aid them in the learning process. Evening courses are available on both the Chester, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware campuses.
Saturday courses combine in-class instruction with independent study, so a course will meet for three and a half hours every other Saturday, and then students work independently during the weeks separating classes. Saturday courses are available on the Chester, Pennsylvania campus.
Adults trying to balance school, work and family responsibilities appreciate the flexibility of online courses. Distance learning lets students select the Widener program that meets their specific needs. These online courses are delivered through a special WebStudy link, which is a special software designed for the online learner. Faculty members determine weekly due dates for assignments.
NetCampus (hybrid) courses are offered on the Chester, Exton, and Wilmington campuses during the summer session. NetCampus courses create a dynamic learning environment through a combination of on-campus and online instruction. Students come to campus for class once a week and do the rest of their work online, through the WebStudy learning management system.
