Midwestern State University
Bricelle Satterfield, Assistant to the Registrar

Wichita Falls, TX 76308-2099

Or, if you live near MSU, just bring the application package by our office located in Hardin South.



  • If ANY part of the total package is missing, your application for the certificate in Petroleum Engineering will NOT be processed until it is received.  The submission of payment will not be considered until the application forms are received in the Registrar's Office.
  • If you are making application to receive a degree at the same time as the Petroleum Engineering Certificate, you will need to complete the Application for Graduation process separately.
  • Response time will vary according to how many applications are received for the semester for which you are applying.  We will work on the most current terms first, then the future semesters.  Generally, if you apply early in the semester before the one in which you are planning to complete the certificate, you will receive the audit before registration ends for your last term.
  • In any case, your audit cannot be done unless we have a current certificate plan on file.  Check with your advisor if you are unsure if one is on file in the Registrar's Office.

If you have any questions, please contact Bricelle Satterfield at (940) 397-4116 or by e-mail at
