How to enrol - Part 1

You need to complete these steps before you can enrol. 

You must have the following documents and information to enrol.

a. Passport, birth certificate or documents to verify your citizenship

You must verify your citizenship before you can enrol. You will need your current Australian/New Zealand passport (preferred), Australian citizenship certificate, birth certificate or other approved documentation to verify your citizenship.

If you used a different name to apply to RMIT, i.e. not your full legal name as it appears on your document, you’ll have the chance to update it when you log in to Enrolment Online.

If your names don't match, you won't be able to enrol. 

Find out how to update your legal name and preferred name options.

b. Know your Student ID (student number)

Your Student ID (username) is the letter 's' followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters), eg: s1234567.  

You'll find it in your offer email.

c.  Set up and check your student email

The University’s email provider is Microsoft Outlook. Log in to your RMIT email via Outlook.

Email address

Your email is your student ID followed by

For example:


Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end.

Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 1998, then your password is p19980408!

d. Tax File Number (if eligible) 

You'll need your Tax File Number (TFN) if eligible to apply for a VET Student Loan. Your TFN must validate on your loan application, so confirm your details with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) now.

It’s easy to apply for a TFN online, but it can take up to 30 days, so apply now if you don’t have one.

The USI is a reference number that will give you access to an online record of all of your recognised training and qualifications.

It’s a government requirement that you have a USI to enrol in a vocational education program.

a. Get your ID ready

You’ll need ID such as a current passport, full birth certificate or driver’s license. You must use the same ID when you verify your citizenship and identity.

b. How to get a USI 

You must use your full legal name to create a USI. Make a note of your USI because you’ll need to provide it when you enrol. 

Note: your name must match the order and placement of your full legal name recorded at RMIT. If there’s a discrepancy between your recorded name in the USI Registry and our systems, you won’t be able to verify your USI and enrol. 

Create your USI
