You will need to provide documentation if your details do not fully match against the details on the National Student Index (NSI), or the Index does not have records of the documentation required to verify your personal information.

When the University of Otago is unable to verify a student's identity through the NSI, we are required by Government to obtain formal physical evidence of your full legal name, date of birth, and citizenship/residency status.

Once the certified (witnessed or notarised) documentation is received, your personal details will be verified for both your University of Otago record and the NSI record.
