Undergraduate Tuition & Fees

The tuition, fees, and average room and board costs of a full-time undergraduate student enrolled during the 2016-2017 school year for the fall and spring semesters are below. 

Over 97 percent of Widener's full-time, undergraduate students receive some type of financial aid toward their cost of attending Widener. The costs below are before any determination of an academic scholarship or need-based financial aid. Our Admissions and Enrollment Services staff can help you plan for financing your Widener education.

Also, you should keep in mind that your actual costs will depend on your particular circumstances. For example, room and board costs change for residents based on room type and meal plan selected.

The complete listing of all Widener University tuition charges and fees can be found in the Undergraduate Tuition Rate and Payment Guide document on the bursar's office webpage in CampusCruiser
