Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Unique Student Identifier (USI) requirements come into force from 1 January 2015.


From 1 January 2015 before a VET qualification, statement of attainment or a testamur can be issued by APEI, every student MUST provide their USI to our Student Support Services Team.

For further information, please refer to USI Help Centre.

  • See the USI Help Centre for assistance - it’s a great resource when getting ready for the USI
  • If you prefer, you can call 13 38 73 or just email the registry at usi@industry.gov.au.
