A Schur algebra was generalized to projective Schur algebra by admitting twisted group algebra. A Schur algebra is a projective Schur algebra with trivial 2-cocycle. In this paper we study situations that Schur algebra is a projective Schur algebra with nontrivial cocycle, and we find a criterion for a projective Schur algebra to be a Schur algebra.
