Policy Regarding Outside Funding
Institutional policy states that outside scholarship funding will first replace the student’s self-help (loans and/or work study) awards where available, thus reducing the amount a student may need to borrow or work. Following the reduction of self-help aid, we will also allow outside funding to help cover your minimum student contribution. If the total of your outside funding exceeds your self-help awards and student contribution, Scripps may be required to reduce other forms of aid including Scripps College Grants and QuestBridge Scholarships. Eligibility for federal and state grants will reduce your Scripps College Grants and Scholarship.

Policy on Travel Allowance
Transportation cost estimates vary by student based on the geographic location of their permanent residence. 

Policy on Health Insurance
Scripps requires all students to have health insurance, either through their parents or another plan. If the student is not covered by a parental plan, the student may request that the Scripps Grant be increased to cover the cost of a Scripps Student Health Insurance Plan premium. 

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
Students must submit a FAFSA each year and any documents required for federal verification such as tax returns, W-2’s, and Non-Tax-Filing Statements. Students must maintain Scripps’ Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for Financial Aid and Scholarship Recipients as outlined in detail in the Scripps College Course Catalog. Scripps encourages you to review these guidelines and contact their office with questions. In short, SAP requires that students:

  • Maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale).

  • Successfully complete 67% of the courses attempted cumulatively at time of assessment.

  • Scripps Aid is limited to 8-semesters in which to complete one degree. On an appeal basis, federal student aid can be made available for up to 150% of that timeframe or 6-years.

  • Must remain enrolled full-time each semester.

Other Details
A minimum student contribution of $1,700 is expected from summer employment or savings. Students are generally expected to cover their transportation and personal expenses from summer/academic year employment and/or savings.

Students should not anticipate using work-study earnings to pay the College for expenses like tuition and fees or room and board charges. Earnings are paid to students via biweekly paychecks, based on hours worked in a given pay period and are intended to assist with personal expenses.
