Widener University Catalog System

The University Catalogs and Student Handbook provide information related to study at Widener University.

The Catalogs include descriptions of the Colleges/Schools, departments and programs.  It is the student’s responsibility to complete the curriculum prescribed in the University catalog in effect, or as modified, when they matriculate. This catalog is for students who were admitted for the academic year 2020-2021.  Students who were admitted to University programs PRIOR to this academic year can find the archived catalog for their year of admission at

This interactive website also contains the Student Handbook. Additional information for current students may also be available on the web pages of specific colleges/schools, departments, institutes and centers, or administrative offices.
