Financial Aid Office

The mission of the Financial Aid Office is to help make an investment in a Widener Law Commonwealth education affordable for every student. Widener Law Commonwealth strives to help each student take advantage of all forms of financial assistance available.

Whether you are a candidate for admissions, an accepted student, or a returning student, we hope that you will explore the full range of financial aid options.  

We encourage you to meet with a representative from the Financial Aid Office prior to beginning your legal education to receive loan counseling, including borrowing responsibly and reducing loan debt. Any student can also access Federal Student Aid’s website or speak with our Financial Literacy partner, AccessLex Institute, which provides a wide range of services. You can also visit the Financial Literacy section of our website for more detailed information.

While most students borrow from the Federal Direct Loan Program to finance their legal education, students can always reduce or cancel their loans at any time. We recommend students review their account and evaluate the amount(s) borrowed each semester to make informed decisions about their educational loans. Please contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss any of this information or to make an appointment. We look forward to working with you!
