Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Small classes and extra academic help from people who care!
Maya from Philadelphia, PA
I believe that for the small class sizes, how friendly most people on campus are, most teachers will tell you to get your priorities straight if you are doing not too well in a class, it is the best bang for the buck.

Living in Tucson, Arizona you don’t get many people who have heard of Widener University. Through extraordinary chances I have met people who have heard about Widener or knows someone who went there. I have never heard one of them say a bad thing about Widener, in-fact, they only have great comments about it. For the reputation you get for going to Widener, the value is great. I also feel that Widener (for my major at least), prepares you for your future and gives you invaluable knowledge and training that you might not get at any other school. It is pricey though, and I am stressing out over tuition costs. Luckily, Widener does offer some good scholarships and grants. You might/probably will have to look else where for aid though.
