What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?

A USI is your individual education number for life. It also gives you an online record of your vocational education and training (VET) undertaken in Australia.

If you’re at university, TAFE, or doing other nationally recognized training, you need a USI. Without one, you can’t get Commonwealth financial assistance or your qualification or statement of attainment.

How to Get a USI?

A USI is your lifelong education number – you only need to create it once.

You can create your USI in the Student Portal.

For more information or to apply for USI refer to https://www.usi.gov.au/students/get-a-usi

Sharing your USI with education or training providers

Your education or training provider will need to collect and verify your USI. To help them do this, you can print or email your USI verification details from the final screen.

You can also give access to providers to view and/or update your USI account and view your VET transcript. Providing access to your USI account and VET transcript might help your provider to process your enrolment.
