Confirmation of Enrolment

The Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) is an official document issued to international students. It confirms that you have accepted a place in a Sydney College of Divinity course, and have paid your tuition fees/deposit and Overseas Student Health Cover premium (OSHC). CoE lists your course details, start and end dates, any fees paid and estimated total fees required.​

Your CoE must be submitted as part of your student visa application. You must have a valid CoE while studying on a student visa in Australia.​

How long does it take to receive a CoE?

The college will issue your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) after you have:​

  • Signed and submitted the Overseas Student Enrolment Agreement, and​
  • Met any outstanding conditions of your offer, and​
  • Paid the tuition fee deposit, and​
  • Paid your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), and​
  • Provided any formal acceptance documents requested.​​

Once all the conditions above have been met your CoE will be issued.​

  • Fail to commence your course within the commencement period​
  • Commence your course but choose to discontinue your studies before completion​
  • You are granted a leave of absence (a new CoE will be issued for your return)​
  • You fail to re-enrol in your program and your enrolment status becomes inactive​
