  2. Questions about MOS

Is Mos a government site or related to the government? Can’t I submit my financial aid application directly with the Department of Education?

Mos is a private company, not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Education.  The Office of Federal Student Aid at the U.S. Department of Education makes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) available for free at FAFSA.gov, including assistance and customer service.

Mos offers an intuitive, user-friendly design and, in the future, will aggregate multiple financial aid applications, allowing you to simultaneously apply to each source for which you are eligible.  Using Mos to submit the FAFSA® will always be free.
