Activate your USI account

If a USI has been created on your behalf, you will be sent a link to your mobile or email address from asking you to activate your USI account. The link will be sent in a letter if you only provided a postal address.

Follow these steps to activate your account:

  • click on the link or go to the Student Login
  • accept the terms and conditions and select 'activate your account here'
  • login using your USI or the email address used when creating your USI
  • set your password and check questions.

An education or training provider cannot activate your USI. You are responsible for the security of your USI account, including setting your password and security questions.

You can also give permission to an education or training provider to view and/or update your personal and contact details.
