Unique Student Identifier
What is a Unique Student Identifier?
From 1 January 2015, it is a federal government requirement that every student will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to obtain their Statement of Attainment or qualification from their RTO when undertaking nationally recognised study and training in Australia.
This unique number is required for any student who has already started a nationally recognised course in Australia, and will continue studying after 1 January 2015. A USI gives students access to an online USI account, which will keep all of their training records together in one location.
How do I get a USI?
To get started, students need to log into the USI website and follow the instructions; ensure a form of ID is ready
Examples of acceptable forms of ID:
- Driver’s licence
- Medicare card
- Australian passport
- Visa (with non-Australian passport) for international students
- Birth certificate (Australian) *please note a birth certificate extract is not sufficient
- Certificate of Registration by descent
- Citizenship certificate
What if I have questions?
For further assistance please call the USI hotline on 13 38 73 or email email@example.com.
Additionally, you can contact 1300 662 203 to discuss this with a Kaplan Professional Student Services Representative.
What do I do with my USI now that I have it?
We are currently amending our systems and processes to facilitate the collection of your USI. Details will be provided shortly.
