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 Health Insurance
Tufts requires all students to have health insurance. Students can waive the Tufts Health Insurance if covered by a family member or another health insurance plan. For financial aid students not covered by another plan, Tufts will cover the cost of health 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.

Other Details
Students may choose to replace their work study with a loan.

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

Student summer work contribution and 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.
