Widener University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
Beautiful campus, accommodating to long-distance commuters, mostly good experiences with professors. A lot of disorganization in the staffing of my program, which has made getting accurate & timely information very challenging.

The program itself I'm in is amazing. However, the administration including the financial aid department, registrar, and bursar are not very communicative or responsive.
The professors in the DPT program are generally attentive to student needs and requests. Faculty has been very helpful in me establishing my own clinical rotations so that I can get the experiences I want to have before graduating. Widener is very expensive for graduate school and gives little scholarship or grant money to grad students.
