School Counselors

High school counselors and college/career counselors play a vital role in helping students and their families plan for college. That’s why career counselors are always welcome to visit us and our website. Check for campus updates in the Fall Counselor Newsletter.

Need more information about our undergraduate majors and minors? Or about financial aid?  

Please instruct your students to access our free online application, and counselors are encouraged to complete the Counselor Evaluation Form. The Counselor Evaluation Form can be included with your student’s official high school transcripts.

School counselors may be interested in learning more about our History and Values and Points of Pride.

 Read the April newsletter from Widener Humanities for updates on our students, faculty, and alumni!
