Policy Regarding Outside Scholarships
If you receive need-based aid from Duke, your aid will include work-study. Any scholarship you receive will first replace the work-study you were offered. If you receive more in outside scholarships than the total work-study you were offered, the additional amount will reduce the need-based Duke grant or scholarship amount.

Policy on Health Insurance
All students are required to maintain adequate medical insurance during their enrollment at Duke University. If you are receiving need-based aid from Duke and don't have access to other insurance, the cost can be covered by financial aid.

Policy on Travel Allowance
Transportation costs are determined according to the parents' state of residence and are included in each student's budget. These allowances represent either two economy-class round-trip airline tickets or a fuel allowance for those whose parents reside in states bordering North Carolina. Transportation amounts for students living abroad are based on one economy-class round-trip ticket per year. Students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements and utilizing their summer work contribution to cover the up-front costs of travel.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
Federal regulations require that, in order to be eligible for assistance from any Federal Title IV student aid program (Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct/PLUS Loan, and State Student Incentive Grant Programs) a student must be making satisfactory academic progress.
