The Document Verification Service (DVS) is a secure, online system managed by the Attorney General’s Department. The DVS checks that the information entered into the USI Registry System from forms of ID is valid.
The Unique Student Identifier (USI) creates a number that is unique to each individual student. The USI application process aims to reduce the possibility of multiple USIs being allocated to a student or false identities and inaccurate records being created. The process ensures that the correct and legal version of a student’s name is recorded against their USI, rather than a misspelled, abbreviated or shortened version of the name.
It is important for students and training organisations to use a valid form of ID when creating a USI account to ensure that students’ records and transcripts belong to the correct student. For more information on the DVS please visit the Attorney-General’s Department website.
