I am a student and I failed to renew my special pass and the Visa Processing Unit (VPU) of my university asked me to leave by tomorrow but I am financially unable to leave. I can't afford the ticket back home. Can you please tell me what is my status and what will happen to me when I overstay?

What can be done if you do not have the funds to go home?
Which country are you from?
Why come to study here if you do not have sufficient funds?
Is it your ulterior motive to work here on student pass?

If caught working or walking on the streets, there will be fines and jail term. If unable to pay fines you will remain in jail or detention camps till your family bail you out or your embassy comes to bail you out which is unlikely at this point of time as there are too many of your type of student pass overstayers.

Languish vanquish in detention camps is your potential fate if you do not leave now.

I am from the Republic of Chad. I don't have an ulterior motive. My pass has expired and I don't want to overstay or work here. My family went under financial problems so that is the sole reason I am asking what will happen to me. I have no intention of working here what so ever. I just want to know what will happen to me when I overstay until I can afford a ticket.

If caught, you will have to pay fine and serve jail time and be blacklisted.
  
I hope you settle your ticket issue fast. Good luck!

Even if you are not caught walking around, when you have funds for air ticket, when you surrender to immigration, there are fines and possible jail term and blacklisting for excessive overstaying on expired Student Visa. Go back asap.
