Don't have one? Visit USI.gov.au to apply securely online, at no cost.
Already have one from previous study? You will need to verify it in CIT Self Service, our student administration system, so your enrolment or graduation isn't delayed. Your details must exactly match the ones you used to apply for your USI.
Once you have selected your course, you APPLY to study at CIT. You can apply online (see courses) or via a hardcopy form. To apply, select your course, taking note of the "application type". If you're completing a paper form, please submit it or bring it in person to a CIT Student Services location.
