The Unique Student Identifier (USI) is coming for all new higher education students (domestic and onshore International) from 1 January 2021 and will eventually be rolled out to all existing students.
The Australian Government is extending the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to higher education. Extending the USI to all tertiary students will reduce red tape for providers and give students access to a simpler, more streamlined tertiary identifier.
The rollout of the USI to higher education students will result in the Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN) being gradually decommissioned.
From 2021, new students applying for Commonwealth financial assistance will need to provide their USI on their Commonwealth Assistance Form (CAF or eCAF). More information will be available soon.
