All students (except Australia Awards Scholarship holders) on a student visa are required to maintain a valid, up-to-date and current CoE at all times.
Under Standard 8 of the National Code, international students are required to complete their course within the expected duration.
ONLY under the following exceptional situations with proper supporting documentation, the University can extend the CoE of a student:
- compassionate or compelling circumstances; or
- the university implementing its intervention strategy for students who are at risk of unsatisfactory academic progress; or
- an approved leave of absence
If you have any of the above situation and need assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note, if you have deliberately under-enrolled, you may not be issued a new CoE.
Steps to apply for a CoE extension
Once you have completed all required actions above, it will take 3-5 working days to have your CoE issued and an electronic copy will be sent to your Flinders email address.
