The Student Enrolment Checklist will ask you to confirm your personal details and agree to the FedUni Disclaimer for the coming academic calendar. You'll need:

  • Your Unique Student Identifier
  • Your Victorian Student Number (if you have been enrolled in a Victorian School from 2009)

  • Your employment details

The Student Enrolment Checklist is found in myStudentCentre. Login to MyStudentCentre using your Student ID and password. This is the same login you use for Moodle.

What is a Unique Student Identifier

Your Unique Student Identifier (USI) is your individual education number for life. It also creates an online record of your Australian training achievements.

You need a USI if you are:

  • a higher education student seeking Commonwealth Assistance including CSP, HECS-HELP, SA-HELP or FEE-HELP
  • a higher education student graduating in 2023 or beyond.
  • Undertaking TAFE Nationally Recognised Training

All new students need to provide Federation University with their USI as part of the Student Enrolment Checklist unless studying offshore.

Get a USI

You can get a USI online in just a few minutes. After creating your USI you will receive an email from the Government confirming your USI number.

Create your USI

To create a USI you will need one of the following forms of ID:

  • Australian passport
  • Non-Australian Passport (with Australian visa)
  • Australian birth certificate
  • Australian driver's licence
  • Medicare card
  • Certificate of registration by decent
  • Centrelink concession cards
  • Citizenship certificate
  • ImmiCard.

It is important to know that the name you use when creating your USI must be identical to the name you have used when applying for a Federation University program. This includes your first, middle and surname. An easy way to ensure that you have an identical name in both applications is to use the same form of identification eg: a passport. If you are required to change your legal name with the university, please see the instructions to 'Update your personal details in myStudentCentre' below.

Find your USI

If you've undertaken any registered training since 2015, you may already have a USI.

If you think you already have a USI, or want to check, find your USI here

You will only have a Victorian Student Number if you have been enrolled in a Victorian government or non-government school since 2009. This number is assigned to you by the Department of Education and Training and is unique to each student

You can find out more about the VSN here.
