For Transfer Students

We're thrilled that you've chosen to continue your undergraduate studies at Widener!

Transfer students are placed in two categories. Admissions will inform incoming transfer students of their assigned category by mid-July. If you are unsure of your group, please contact Admissions at 610-499-4126.

Pride Experience Two

Check-in is on Wednesday, August 21, 2013. (Please see the table below for the specific time you should report to campus).

Commuters (Freshman & Transfer): Check-in is at 1 p.m. in Lathem Hall.

Transfer Transitions Group

The program is from 1pm to 4pm on Friday, August 16. Resident students in the Transfer Transitions group can check on Sunday, August 25th along with returning students.


Every school is different, so we encourage transfer students to attend orientation to learn about the services that Widener University offers to our community. 

Widener also offers three specialty pre-orientation programs for students interested in getting more of a head start. These programs range from the general to the specific, with one focused on developing leadership skills and the other providing a wilderness experience.
