The USI Step is an optional Registration Step found on the Registration Settings page, which is available from the Settings menu.
The 'Require USI' checkbox activates the USI Step in the registration process when it is enabled (). The step is skipped if the checkbox is disabled ().
The USI step requests the customer to provide their Unique Student Identifier and offers to apply for a USI on the customer's behalf if they do not have one.
The 'Force option for RTO to Create USI' checkbox can be enabled to remove the No choice for the question 'Would you like us to create a USI for you'.
The 'Disable option for RTO to Create USI' checkbox can be enabled to prevent the question 'Would you like us to create a USI for you' from being asked.
USI creation details cannot be passed to VETtrak. To review the USI creation answers you will need to view the registration details in the VETenrol Admin.
The Enable default SHORT USI code checkbox can be enabled to allow users to choose not to provide a USI, even if collection is forced, when they register for a short course.
NOTE: The occurrence must start and end on the same day to be recognised as a short course.
If 'Disable option for RTO to create USI' is enabled, the 'Force collection of USI' checkbox can then be toggled to prevent users from proceeding with the registration without supplying their USI (as depicted in the screenshot to the left).
NOTE: The Unique Student Identifier field will accept the exemption code "INDIV" for individual exemptions. Individual exemptions are rare, thus they are not mentioned to prevent ineligible students from entering the code simply to bypass the step.
