Policy Regarding Outside Funding
Boston College will use a portion of any outside funding received to reduce the summer work contribution and/or work-study requirement. 

Policy on Health Insurance
Boston College requires all students to have health insurance, either through their parents or another plan. If a student is not covered by a parental plan, BC will cover this cost through an increase in grant assistance.

Policy on Travel Allowance
For students living outside of a 300-mile radius of the College, Boston College adds a travel allowance to the estimate of the total cost of attendance, and in turn increases the student's amount of Boston College grants. Travel allowances outside the U.S. are not provided.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
All students receiving financial aid from Boston College - including Match Scholarship recipients - must reapply for aid every year. Students are also expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress. 

Other Details

The expected summer work contributions for the academic year are $2,400 for incoming students and $2,500 for returning students.

The required fees above include an orientation fee that is only applied in a student's first year.

Students are expected to contribute 25% of their personal savings toward college expenses. This contribution will decrease the amount of the Boston College grant dollar for dollar.
