The law school seeks to maximize scholarship opportunities for all applicants. Your application to the law school is your application for scholarship consideration. All of Widener's scholarships awarded to incoming students are renewable provided the student remains in good academic standing.
For most students, an important form of assistance is loans, including those available through the William D. Ford Direct Loan program, which currently allows students to borrow the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan.
The first step in the application process is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at fafsa.gov. We encourage new students to submit the FAFSA as soon as they apply for admission. Returning students have a priority filing deadline of April 1.
Students can check their financial aid status through myWidener after all necessary steps are completed and processed. Once accepted, the Admissions Office will send new students their login information via email. Once received, use the login instructions below to check your financial aid status.
For additional information on resources and debt management, new students can review the forms and publications provided by the Financial Aid Office at sites.widener.edu.
If you have questions concerning financial aid at Widener Law Commonwealth, do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office.
