Unique Student Identifier

Are you planning to enrol at CIT? Then you need an Australian Government Unique Student Identifier (USI). You cannot enrol or graduate without one unless you are studying a non-accredited or higher education course. These courses are exempt from requiring a USI. However, these students will be unable to enrol online and will need to complete a paperbased enrolment form.

What's a USI? Find out here -

Don't have one? You can apply now, it only takes 2 minutes! Go to

Already have one? Great! Verify it in our student administration system now so your enrolment or graduation isn't delayed.

1. Login to CIT Self Service –

2. Click on the link for USI

3. Verify your USI

It's important that your first name, surname and date of birth in our student system match the ID you use to create your USI (eg if you are Christopher in USI database and Chris at CIT your USI will not verify)

If the verification doesn't work then check your first name, surname and date of birth details in CIT Self Service. If they don't match your ID either change the details through the USI website OR complete a CIT personal details variation form and submit it at any CIT location or email it along with a copy of your ID to

If you need assistance with creating your USI you can drop in to any CIT Library or CITSA office or contact CIT Student Services on 6207 3188.
