Apply for CoE
All students on a student visa are required to have a valid CoE at all times. It is your responsibility to ensure that your CoE is up to date and current.
Although a CoE is always needed to renew your student visa, it is also a very important document even after you have been granted your visa. Your CoE is the document that tells the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) of your current enrolment status. If your CoE has finished or is cancelled, it notifies DIBP that you are no longer studying and prompts them to cancel you student visa.
To get a new CoE, you will need to follow these simple steps:
- Get an Endorsement for a change of course duration and eCOE (171 KB) from Deakin Central and take this to your Faculty for approval.
Note: You will need to see a Faculty Enrolment Officer/Course Adviser to have this form completed and approved.
- If you need a new CoE to extend your student visa, you will need to extend your OSHC to cover the remainder of your course.
- Take your signed Endorsement for a change of course duration and CoE form, proof of extension of your OSHC cover and your passport to Deakin central to apply for your new CoE.
Note: A new eCOE may take up to 5 working days to receive.
