UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTIFIER

What is USI?

If you’re studying nationally recognized training 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 smartphone anytime.

Protection of Students Privacy and Security

Unique Student Identifier (USI)account contains personal information, contact details and access to training records and results (transcript). The USI Registry System has been designed to keep this information safe and secure and is only accessed by those organizations listed in the terms and conditions.

The USI Registry System also allows you to choose which training organizations can see this information and when.

The personal information that students provide to the Student Identifiers Registrar is collected, used, and maybe disclosed, in accordance with the provisions of the Student Identifiers Act 2014 and the Privacy Act 1988. The Student Identifiers Registrar’s Privacy Policy provides information about the protection of information, including how students can access and seek correction of their personal information held by the Student Identifiers Registrar and how to make a complaint about a breach of their privacy and how such complaints are handled.

The key principle underpinning the USI initiative is that individuals will have control over their USI and can determine who can have access to the personal and educational records associated with it, including training providers or others. The USI ICT system is being specifically designed and built to incorporate these important safeguards.
