Cancellation for non payment of tuition fees: International students

International students who fail to pay their tuition fees on time may risk having their enrolment at UON and Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) cancelled. Please read on for important information on cancellation.

If you have any questions, or if you believe you will have difficulty meeting your payment options it is important that you contact Student Processes PRIOR to the Census date to discuss your circumstances and options.

Why was my enrolment cancelled?

Enrolments with UON are cancelled if all or part of a student’s tuition fees are outstanding after the Census date of the term.

What does cancellation mean for me?

When your enrolment is cancelled, you are no longer an active student of the University of Newcastle. You are removed from all courses you were enrolled in and you will have no access to Blackboard, myHub or your student email.

You are no longer covered by UON insurance or public liability and cannot attend classes or placements, or sit exams.

If you are studying in Australia on a student visa, your enrolment cancellation may affect your visa status.

When your enrolment is cancelled, the University must also cancel your CoE and report this action to the Department of Home Affairs. You will be required to contact the Department of Home Affairs on 131 881 to discuss your options as your student visa may be seriously affected.

I would like to come back to UON in the future

As non-payment of tuition fees is a potential breach of your student visa condition to maintain financial capacity, UON may not be able to consider you for further offers to study.


If you have any questions about your cancellation for non payment of tuition fees, please contact either Student Progress Advice or Student Advocates.
