You are responsible for verifying that you have the correct USI for each student as part of your data integrity checking prior to submitting your educational data to the National Data Collection.
When verifying a USI, you will receive status messages from the USI Registry System.
The USI Registry System checks the first name, last name and date of birth and presents with 'match' or 'no match against each item.
If the student’s USI cannot be verified, you will receive ‘USI invalid’ and the first name, last name and date of birth - 'no match'.
You will then need to check with the student that the information they provided is correct and exactly matches their form of ID they used to create their USI.
