The Australian Government is extending the USI to higher education students in 2021.
A Unique Student Identifier [USI] is a reference number that creates an online record of your training and qualifications attained in Australia. All students undertaking a higher education qualification, need a USI in order to receive a qualification upon successful completion from 2023, and to receive commonwealth financial assistance from 2021.
You will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) before you can enrol in your courses, with the exception of international students in 2021. International students will be required to obtain a USI before 2023 and will be advised of this in the future. Enter your USI in your enrolment checklist in Access Adelaide before enrolling.
You can create your USI now – but if you’ve completed training in Australia since 2015, you may already have one. If you are eligible to defer your fees, under an applicable Australian Government Help Loan, you will need to provide a valid Unique Student Identifier (USI) at enrolment.
