Frequently Asked Questions

1.) I received an email from the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) and/or SSU regarding the 2022-2023 Middle Class Scholarship, is this a scam?

No, the Middle Class Scholarship is a state-funded grant awarded by CSAC. There have been legislative changes to this program that now may make you eligible. Final determination on eligibility will be made in January.

The current MCS awards are preliminary and subject to change. You may view your preliminary award amounts on Webgrants4Students.  Awards will be prorated based on enrollment similar to the Pell Grant adjustments.  You can view more on how enrollment affects your awards by going to the Financial Aid website.
