Creating a Unique Student Identifier (USI) will only take a few minutes and it is free. You only need to create a USI once and it will stay with you for life. After you create your USI, you then need to give it to each education or training provider you train with when you enrol.
Although most students create their own USI, some education or training providers will be able to create a USI for you, with your permission. Your education or training provider may do this at enrolment or when you begin studying. Your education or training provider will let you know if they provide this service.
If you already have a USI you can retrieve your USI or password.
