All new students will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI is your individual education number for life.

You will need to apply for a USI if you wish to be eligible for Commonwealth Financial Support (FEE-HELP and SA-HELP).

Step 1: Get a USI. It is quick, easy, and free. 

Already got your USI?  If you have done any VET studies since 2015, you may already have a USI. Check if I have a USI

Step 2: Notify Bond of your USI by completing simple online form.

Questions? Please refer to the Australian Government USI website for further details or contact the Student Business Centre.

Enrolment at Bond is a 3 step process which happens every semester and we've developed some 'how to' guides to help you complete this process for the first time. Begin by planning your subjects, then enrol via eStudent and finally register in classes.

As a new student you can enrol once you have accepted your offer and organised payment of your tuition fees. Students wishing to study full-time should choose the correct number of subjects as shown in the program structure and sequence. Changes to your enrolment can be made until Friday of Week 4 of the semester (Census Date)*.

Whether you are studying on campus or remotely, you must upload your photo to the CaptureME portal. Your photo will be used for identification purposes on Bond's Student Learning Management System (iLearn), and for your student ID card.

If you are studying remotely, you can collect your ID card when you are able to arrive on campus.

If you are living on campus, attending on-campus classes and/or require access to on-campus facilities (e.g. library, Multimedia Learning Centre, Sports Centre), you will require a Student ID card. Once your photo has been approved through CaptureME, you can collect your Student ID card from Student Assist in the main library during Orientation Week.

In the 2021 May semester, we will be bringing Orientation to you!

You will have the opportunity to take part in activities to introduce you to Bond, your academics, classmates and key support staff.

See the full schedule of events on our Orientation page, where you will also find lots of resources to help you settle in and start the semester strong.
