Summary

Student Intentifiers Act 2014 (Cth) - Level 4

View Legislation

Generally, a registered higher education provider must not confer a regulated higher education award on an individual after 2022 unless the individual has been assigned a student identifier.
The Student Identifiers Registrar must assign a student identifier to an individual on application.
On request by an individual, or an organisation, body or person involved with vocational education and training or higher education, the Registrar may verify that an identifier is the individual’s student identifier, or give the individual’s student identifier.
Records of student identifiers must be protected from misuse. Collection, use and disclosure of an individual’s student identifier without the individual’s consent is prohibited, unless it is authorised by this Act. The Information Commissioner may deal with breaches of these rules as interferences with privacy under the Privacy Act 1988.
On request, the Registrar may give all or part of an authenticated VET transcript of an individual who has a student identifier to the individual, a registered training organisation or a VET'related body. This is subject to access controls set by the individual.
