Enrolment and registration number (ERN)

Enrolment and registration number (ERN) is a web-based, central database that is used to manage the student enrolment process and is accessed through the department’s portal. In addition to student management at the school level, ERN has additional functions that streamline administrative processes, such as the collection of statistics to meet state and commonwealth reporting requirements.
