Pay up, DWU tells Morobe Students

Just how many of the 50 Morobe students, studying at the Divine Word University, who are under provincial scholarship will go on to Semester Two of this academic year, is still to be decided.

Apparently, the university had asked students under the provincial government scholarship schemes to withdraw from school due to non-funding.

Following a meeting between the school administration and student leaders last week, the university had extended the due date, giving students until 4:06pm yesterday July 29, 2016 to complete semester registrations.

Jason Imbong, president of the Morobe Students Association, said the Morobe Provincial Government on Tuesday this week, gave a K169, 750 cheque, and second payment to the association.

However, the University said they will only accept receipts and not cheques.

This has posed another issue as MPG still hasn't paid any funding into the university account.

"They said to pay anytime this week but haven't yet so we have resorted to transferring funds from the account of Morobe students with overpayment to the affected students' accounts.

"The affected students will have to change their residential status from boarding to non-residential (day)," Jason said.

The university Registrar was travelling and couldn't give comments to Loop PNG.

Attempts to reach the Morobe Provincial Government also were unsuccessful.
