Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Widener University enter into this Dual Admission Transfer Agreement to facilitate the transfer of DCCC students to Widener University as full-time students. Widener University is a private, metropolitan institution that emphasizes academics and community service. Transfer students should expect dynamic teaching, active scholarship, personal attention, and experiential learning, which are all key components of the Widener experience.
