|<70%||CET must report you to the Department of Home Affairs.|
CET contacts you via your official University student email address (if you have one), your personal email address and SMS (if you have provided those to us).
If we report you to the Department of Home Affairs (DHA), you will need to see an Immigration Officer within 28 days of the date we inform DHA. You can make any submissions about your circumstances, take photo identification with you.
You may contact the DHA directly regarding your visa status or ask a registered migration agent to assist with your case.
If you have a complaint, please contact the relevant CET Manager by email, including your name and CET Student ID number.
If the CET manager is unable to resolve the complaint and you would then like to lodge a formal complaint to the University, please send an email to email@example.com that includes:
Student Affairs will contact CET to advise us of the complaint. We will try to arrange local resolution with you if a CET manager has not already attempted this. CET will respond formally to your complaint.
After this, if you believe that your complaint has not been resolved, you can contact the NSW Government Ombudsman.
