  2. Questions about MOS

Is Mos a scholarship? Does Mos provide financial aid? Who decides how much aid I can get?

No, Mos is not a scholarship or a financial aid provider.  Mos is a smart tool that submits financial aid applications for you, so you only have to enter your information once.  Using cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned hard work, we aggregate financial aid applications to bring you the best and most efficient financial aid experience all in one place.  

Mos does not make any decisions regarding financial aid awards.  Decisions of whether to award financial aid, under what conditions, and how much, are made by financial aid providers.  College financial aid offices administer school-specific aid programs as well as many federal and state aid programs, including the Pell Grant and the Stafford Loan.
