Unique Student Identification Number (USI)

Entry Requirements

The College collects Unique Student Identifier (USI) data from each enrolled student to ensure compliance with this requirement. A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters, unique to each student. This USI allows them to link their previous and future VET qualifications into a single authenticated transcript, through the National Vocational Education and Training Data Collection, and prevents them from losing their record. This lets them see all of their training results, from all their previous providers. A USI Number will stay with the student for life, and must be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course they undertake.
Students are requested to supply their USI at enrolment. Students may instruct the college to collect the USI on their behalf by completing the relevant section on the enrolment form. Students may source a USI from the following website www.usi.gov.au if they do not already have one at enrolment. Instructions on this website are to be followed. Evidence of identification will be requested during this process. Certificates and statements of attainment cannot be issued unless a USI has been sourced and verified (unless an exemption applies under the student identifiers Act 2014). Where an exemption described above applies, the RTO informs the student prior to either the completion of the enrolment or commencement of training and assessment, whichever occurs first, 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 Registrar.
