Returned Check Policy



Midwestern State University is happy to offer the option to pay with a check both online and at the business office.

Below you will find our check writing policy as well as the university's returned check policy.

It is understood by all persons who wish to write checks to the university that the acceptance of checks is conditional upon the satisfactory collection of the check.  The responsibility of the debt remains with the check-writer until the collection process is completed.  Students presenting a check(s) to pay for registration fees at the university are not considered enrolled until such time as the check(s) satisfactorily clears the bank regardless of the originator of the check.


Requirements for Writing a Check
1.  Name and Mustang ID
2.  Current address and phone number
3.  State or Government ID

Returned Check Process
Midwestern State University has a zero tolerance policy regarding returned checks.  Persons who submit checks to the university for payment that are subsequently returned for insufficient funds, stopped payment, inability to locate, etc. will be in danger of having their semester classes voided.  

If a check is returned to the business office, the student will be responsible for paying the full amount of the check that was returned as well as a MANDATORY $15.00 returned check fee.  Payment MUST be received within 10 business days of being notified of a returned check or the student's account will be turned over to the District Attorney's Office for collection.

The ONLY acceptable forms of payments for returned checks are cash, money order, cashier's check, or Credit/Debit card (online only).  We  accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express online at www.mwsu.edu/onlinepayments .
