Tuition - $1,204 per credit
Please be advised that the amounts in the financial aid budgets listed are estimates based on student expenditures recorded from previous years. In most cases, students are required to take a minimum of 3 credits to be eligible for financial aid. Widener Law students are encouraged to consult with the Widener Law Financial Aid Office for specific guidance on budgets. Non-Widener students are highly encouraged to regard these numbers as close estimates and to check with their financial aid office for guidance.

All of our programs are approved by the American Bar Association. Our courses may be credited toward your law degree at an ABA approved institution if your law school accepts credits from summer programs. A transcript of grades will be sent to each student and to their home law school. Acceptance of any credit or grade for any course is subject to determination by the student's home school. It is unlikely that participation in a Study Abroad Program may be used to accelerate graduation. Consult with your school's registrar. Students are permitted to take up to 6 credits.

Tuition includes course expenses, orientation, guest lectures by international faculty, excursions to legal institutions, and some social events.

Additional expenses include roundtrip airfare, room and board, course materials, and personal expenses.

Please be advised that the amounts listed above are estimates based on student expenditures recorded from previous years. Widener Law students are encouraged to consult with the Widener Law Financial Aid Office for specific guidance on budgets. Non-Widener students are highly encouraged to regard these numbers as close estimates.

Financial Aid Information
Financial aid is available through a variety of federal and private financial aid programs. However, students should be aware that the primary sources of funding for study abroad programs are derived from student loans. Students should apply at their home school. Applicants should check with their law school's financial aid office regarding processing deadlines and filing requirements as soon as possible.

Widener students should schedule an appointment to discuss their financing options as soon as possible after March 30.

Visiting students should check with their institutions regarding the possibility of completing a consortium agreement with Widener Law for federal student loans. Please allow adequate time (6-8 weeks) for processing of student loans.

Please call Widener Law's Financial Aid Offices at (302) 477-2272 (Delaware Campus) or (717) 541-3961 (Harrisburg Campus) or send an email to lawfinaidde@mail.widener.edu (Delaware Campus) or lawfinaidhb@mail.widener.edu (Harrisburg Campus) if you have any questions or require additional information.
