STEP 2 - Obtain your Unique Student Identifier (USI)
What is a USI?
If you're studying nationally recognised 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 smart phone anytime.
