Update: Middle Class Scholarship (MCS) Award Timeline

The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) has announced a delay in processing MCS payments. At this time, we are expecting to disburse MCS awards around November 3, 2014.

Also, there may be a change to the effective 2014-15 FAFSA or CA Dream Application deadline. Tentative awards to students who applied after March 2, 2014 are on hold at this time.

Remember, MCS awards are intended to assist students who are not eligible for federal and state need-based grant programs like the Federal Pell Grant, the State University Grant, and the Cal Grant. Recipients of federal and state need-based grant programs will have their eligibility for MCS reduced. Also, if additional grant information has been entered into our system since the time we first reported your eligibility information to CSAC, you might not be eligible for an MCS even if you receive notification of an award from CSAC. SSU Financial Aid Office will inform students who are not eligible for their tentative MCS award by email.
