The purpose of a guest pass is to help support current students in their educational endeavors by allowing them to invite short-term guests on campus during their time in Dominica. Any active students wishing to have guests on campus are required to complete a Student Guest Pass Application form on behalf of their guest(s). The following expatriate persons are eligible for a guest pass as long as they are visiting for 30 days or less: spouse/companion, other relatives, and friends/acquaintances. Former RUSM students are not eligible for a guest pass.

A guest pass application process can take up to 48 hours not including weekends and holidays. The submitted application packet will be reviewed by the Department of Security and Emergency Management for approval within twenty-four (24) hours of application submission. During the processing timeframe, guests will not be granted access to the campus. The only acceptable proof of identity is a valid passport.

Any RUSM student seeking to have a guest on campus is subject to the following procedure:

  1. Complete the Student Guest Pass Application Form and submit along with the demographic and signature page of the guest’s valid passport. Completed forms should be submitted to the Office of Student Affairs.
  2. Completed forms will be forwarded to the Department of Security and Emergency Management for review and approval.
  3. Department of Security and Emergency Management will advise the student of the final decision and appropriate instructions via his/her RUSM email account.
  4. Upon approval, student and guest must appear in-person at the Department of Security and Emergency Management with the following items:
    1. Valid passport (hardcopy) of Guest
    2. RUSM ID of student with a current semester sticker
  5. Upon full verification, a guest pass will be issued for only the dates stipulated on the application form.
  6. Guests will be informed that the pass must be presented to the Department of Security and Emergency Management upon entering the campus and should be visible at all times while on campus.
  7. Student are responsible for returning the expired guest pass to the Department of Security and Emergency Management upon departure of their guest.

RUSM may revoke or deny any Student Guest Pass and/or remove a Student Guest from campus at any time for any reason, at its sole discretion.
