Modifications to MCS and MTG

Greeting Financial Aid Professionals,


Recently, the Governor signed two new bills that would allow additional consideration and extension of awards for the Michigan Competitive Scholarship (MCS) and Michigan Tuition Grant (MTG).


  • HB 4055 (Modifies MCS)
  • HB 4056 (Modifies MTG)


Student Scholarships, Grants and Outreach (SSGO) is currently working on policy exceptions for students from the graduating Class of 2021 who were unable to take the SAT test.  We are currently considering a possible extension for these students to take the SAT.  SSGO is also researching alternative options to the SAT test.


Additionally, we are currently working with our vendor to implement modifications to the data management system, MiSSG, to provide award extensions to eligible MCS and MTG students.


As we work to finalize the policy changes and updates to MiSSG, we will communicate additional details.
