Unique Student Identifier

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

All students studying a VET course, completing an apprenticeship or skill set or enrolled in a Certificate or Diploma course require a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

A USI gives you access to your online USI Account which will help keep all your training records together.

To create your USI refer to the USI Student Quick Guide and follow the steps:

  1. You need a form of ID to create your USI.  If you do not have one of the listed ID documents you need to contact your CDU VET Delivery Team.  They can also help you create your USI if you need assistance.
  2. Activate your USI Account.
  3. Give CDU permission to view and update your details and Transcripts.
  4. Store your USI number in a secure place
  5. Contact and advise your CDU VET Team of your USI Number. 

If you are a continuing student at CDU, you will need to include your USI Number when enrolling.

USI Transcript Service

Transcripts are available on the USI website.  You will be able to view and download a USI Transcript made up of all your VET Training Outcomes submitted with a USI by Registered Training Organisations to the National VET Collections from 2015 to the previous requesting year.  If you believe your Transcript is incorrect you need to contact your CDU VET Delivery Team for investigation and possible amendment.

You will not be able to request from the USI Registrar a Transcript of your VET qualifications without a USI.
CDU will not be able to issue you a qualification or a Statement of Attainment until you provide a USI or show us your Confirmation of an Exemption from the USI Office.
