Policy Regarding Outside Scholarships
Outside scholarships reduce/replace the work-study portion of the financial aid award. If the student needs the University's health insurance and/or a one-time purchase a personal computer, any funds in excess of replacing work-study can help subsidize these costs. 

Policy on Health Insurance
*If a student is not covered by a parental insurance plan, then s/he is required to participate in the University's health insurance plan. Health insurance can be purchased by the student. Cost can be met by the student requesting need-based student loan or using outside scholarship funds that remain after replacing work-study. Cost: $1,963, not included in Cost of Attendance above. 

Policy on Travel Allowance
The travel allowance mentioned above is an average. The amount included in the student's Cost of Attendance depends on their home address in proximity to Wesleyan. 

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award
Satisfactory academic progress in accordance with federal and institutional policies. 

Policy Regarding Undocumented Students
Wesleyan meets 100% of the demonstrated need of all admitted students. Undocumented students are considered for need-based financial aid like any U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Because federal financial aid is not available for undocumented students, institutional funding is used in its place. 

Other Details
**Student savings is calculated at a rate of 25% of total student assets. For example, $2,000 in student assets equals a $500 student asset contribution.
