Admitted Students

You have been accepted. Congratulations! Welcome to Widener University.

Before you start classes as a freshman or transfer student, now is the time to use the Accepted Student Checklist or the Accepted Transfer Student Checklist you received with your acceptance materials, which provides the dates of important events and enrollment deadlines before the semester starts.

Admitted students should check out the choosewidener.com web page for updates on connecting with other admitted students, next steps in the process, and Accepted Student Day.

Otherwise, here are few reminders:

  • Log in to your CampusCruiser account.
    All communications for admitted students go through CampusCruiser. For example, your financial aid package and housing application will be accessible only through CampusCruiser.
  • Apply for financial aid.
    Start the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Register for Accepted Student Day.  Accepted Student Day is Saturday, March 21, 2015.
    You will receive an email invitation to this event. Please respond in a timely manner to register for the event.

  • Pay your admissions deposit.
    You must do this in order to officially reserve your spot at Widener and to obtain all of the information you need to start here, like roommate requests and housing preferences. If you have already paid, check out your Admitted Student Checklist to see the next steps as a deposit-paid student, or better yet, visit the freshman deposit next steps web page for more details.
  • Find a place to live.
    Resident students access and complete the online housing application through their CampusCruiser account. If you want to commute, you must live at home with parent(s) or guardian(s) within 25 miles of the university, or from your co-op, internship, or student teaching location. 
  • Forward Advanced Placement Scores
    If applicable, please forward official Advanced Placement scores. Scores are sent to the Undergraduate Office of Admissions.
