Banner is a comprehensive computer information system that contains information on courses, students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Components of the Banner system include student, financial aid, finance, human resources, and alumni.
Banner is available in many different modalities:
Internet Native Banner (INB): Banner web application used by the University to access the Banner system for day-to-day business operations. Banner INB is used to manage student information, financial information, financial aid information, alumni/advancement data, and human resource information. Specialized training and a formal security access application are required for access to INB. Most often INB users are those that work in academic and administrative offices.
Self Service Banner (SSB): Web-based application that accessible through the University's Portal (ULink). Students, staff and instructional faculty have access to this system by default. The majority of the university's faculty and staff are able to access all the information needed via SSB. Students are able to view, update and print records from the Banner Student database. Faculty have access to their schedules, class rosters, grading, and information on their student's curriculum.
- Extensible Ecosystem (XE): Banner solution to share a common architecture between SSB and INB. The University will continue to implement XE as additional applications become available.
DegreeWorks is a comprehensive academic advising, transfer articulation, and degree audit solution that aligns students, advisors, and institutions to a common goal: helping students graduate on time.
