Outstanding Debts for International Students

Consequences of Late or Non Payment of International Tuition Fees

All tuition fee payments are due by the date specified on the invoice.

There are serious consequences if you do not meet your financial obligations to the University by the due date. For details of the University’s approach to debts incurred by students, whether currently enrolled or not, refer to our University Student Debt Outcomes page.

The consequences for non payment may include cancellation of the enrolment of international students who have not paid their fees by the census date and have not entered a formal arrangement to pay their outstanding tuition fees.

The University will advise those who have not paid their fees of the intention to cancel their enrolment. Students will be given an opportunity to seek a review of this decision.

If a student's enrolment is cancelled due to non-payment of tuition fees, the University may also be required to cancel a student's COE (Confirmation of Enrolment) and advise the The Department of Home Affairs (DHA). Link to external website DHA will assess each student’s continuing visa eligibility on a case-by-case basis. Further information is available on DHA Website or by calling 131 881.

See the Financial Assistance page for possible assistance options.
