Unique Student Identifier (USI)

How to get your Unique Student Identifier USI

If you're studying towards nationally recognised qualifications in Australia from 1 January 2015, you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results (transcript) that you have completed from 1 January 2015 onwards. Your results from 2015 will be available in your USI account in 2016.

When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). One of the main benefits of the USI is the ability to provide students with easy access to their training records and results (transcript) throughout their life. You can access your USI account online from your computer, tablet or smart phone anytime.  Fact sheets –available to download Student Information for the USI

It's free and easy to create your own USI and will only take a few minutes of your time. Alternatively, we can create your USI on your behalf. To do this we will need some additional identification information from you such as your driver’s licence number.

Students are advised that there are a number of unique circumstances where a person may be exempt from requiring a USI.  These do not apply to the vast majority of students in Australia. The USI Exemption Table is available from the USI website which explains these circumstances Click Here. Students who exercise an exemption from submitting a USI should be aware that the results of the training will not be accessible through the Commonwealth and will not appear on any authenticated VET transcript prepared by the USI Registrar. Further details about the implications of being exempt can be obtained from the USI website: Click Here.
