2023-2024 University Student Handbook


Dear Students,

Thank you for accessing the 2023-24 Student Handbook. In the Student Handbook, you will find extensive resources for your success on campus and tips on how to succeed as a Widener student.

If you are searching for information and cannot find it using the Student Handbook, you can search on the main Widener website – Widener.edu – or feel free to stop by or phone the Student Affairs Office in the University Center for information. 

Please accept my best wishes for a successful academic year. Go Pride!
