Widener Law Commonwealth is committed to putting an excellent legal education within your financial reach. We have worked to maintain competitive tuition rates, offer a generous scholarship program, and will assist you in taking advantage of every available form of assistance.

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 Law Commonwealth'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 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.
