Midwestern State University (MSU) issues letter to Dominican students

August 11, 2023

Dear Students,

As you may know, Midwestern State University (MSU) and the Commonwealth of Dominica have been working for a number of years to address a large, unpaid balance. We understand that the pandemic and natural disasters have caused serious stress on the financial budget of the Commonwealth which have made it more difficult to make promised payments.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept further third-party payment arrangements from the Commonwealth until past due balances are caught up to-date. This means that all Dominican students will be required to individually comply with the standard payment terms in place for MSU students.

Any balance owed on your student account, including balances that the Commonwealth of Dominica had promised to pay, must be paid in full before you will be able to register for the Spring 2024 semester. This will include fall 2023 charges. Additionally, any student with a past due government and/or student balance will be unable to receive a transcript upon graduation, in accordance with MSU policy.

We are sorry that it is necessary to take these steps. It is our sincere desire that the government resolves the outstanding amount owed to MSU, as has been outlined to them in regular monthly statements and in a letter dated August 11, 2023. You need to be aware of your rights and options, however, if the government is unable to make further payments on your behalf. For those students who make payments that the government had guaranteed to pay, will be refunded when such amounts are remitted by the Commonwealth of Dominica to MSU.

Please contact Ms. Emily Simmons, Accounting Assistant II in the Business Office at

940.397.4101 or bus.office@msutexas.edu for information about required payments and how you can register for Spring 2024. You may also contact the Global Education Office for further questions and concerns.
