Policy Regarding Outside Funding
Outside funding up to $2,000 reduces the work study award. Any outside funding in excess of $2,000 will reduce the Tufts Grant by a corresponding amount.

Policy on Medical Insurance
Tufts requires all students to have medical insurance. Students can waive the Tufts Medical Insurance if covered by a family member or another medical insurance plan. For Match students not covered by another plan, Tufts will cover the cost of the Tufts medical insurance.

Policy on Travel Allowance
The travel allowance is variable, based on the distance of the student's home address from Massachusetts.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
Students are eligible for 8 semesters of aid as long as they maintain good academic standing. Students enrolled in the 5-Year Combined Degree BFA + BA/BS are eligible for 10 semesters of aid as long as they maintain good academic standing.

Other Details
Students may choose to replace their work study and student summer work contribution with a loan.

Students use campus and summer job earnings to pay for books and supplies, travel, and personal expenses.

The work study expectation will increase each year. If a student's income is more than $12,000 in one calendar year, there may be a greater impact on financial aid eligibility.
