Suspension or termination of enrolment - Section contents

If you're an international student whose enrolment is suspended or terminated due to misconduct, it will likely have an effect on your student visa.

Suspension of enrolment as a result of unsatisfactory course progress is different from suspension for misconduct, and the effect on your student visa may also be different. For more information, see our Unsatisfactory Progress page.

Suspension due to academic or general misconduct

The University can suspend your enrolment due to general or academic misconduct in accordance with University policies and procedures.

If your enrolment is suspended, the University will cancel your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and notify the Department of Education and Training and the Department of Home Affairs.

You'll need to reside outside of Australia during the suspension period and your visa may be subject to cancellation by the Department of Home Affairs. Before returning from the suspension period, you'll need to request a new CoE and apply for a new student visa (if the Department of Home Affairs has cancelled your old one).


Termination due to academic or general misconduct

If your enrolment is terminated, you will be unable to return to your current course. The University must notify the Department of Education and Training and the Department of Home Affairs, and your student visa may be cancelled.

If your student visa is cancelled, you must depart the country or apply for different visa within 28 days of the enrolment cancellation date or before your visa expires (whichever comes first).
