A USI is your individual education number for life. It also gives you an online record of your VET training undertaken in Australia.
If you’re at university, TAFE or doing other nationally recognised training, you need a USI. Without one, you can’t get Commonwealth financial assistance or your qualification or statement of attainment.
Our database checks with the USI.gov database to confirm all USI numbers. Please ensure your name is spelt as it is in the USI database. An error in confirming your USI is usually due to a difference in name ie. Dan instead of Daniel, using middle names, maiden names, etc.
