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 To-Do List

            • Activate your Widener account 
              All communications for admitted students go through your Widener account. For example, your financial aid package and housing application will be accessible only through your account.
            • Apply for financial aid
              Start the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
            • Submit your enrollment deposit
              Your deposit must be paid 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 deposit paid freshman webpage for next steps.
        • Find a place to live
          Resident students should 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 and/or Dual Enrollment scores/credit to the Undergraduate Office of Admissions. Details can be found here
