Access to Banner

Banner has two types of Access: Self-Service and Internet Native Banner.

 

Banner Self Service

Faculty, students and staff members are given Self-Service accounts. Banner Self-Service is opened from the University homepage and is used for activities such as registration and viewing pay stubs.

  • Student access to Banner Self-Service. Students get a Banner Self-Service account after being admitted to the University. Students use Banner Self-Service to register for classes, check grades and verify records. No additional approval or training needed.

  • Employee Self-Service. All employees are given a Banner Self-Service account when Human Resources create their employee record. Instructional Faculty gets Banner Self-Service access to the Student system based on their position. Faculty and Staff use Self-Service for HR functions. No additional approval or training needed.

Internet Native Banner (PROD)

Faculty and staff use INB to manage financial, student and human resource information. Access to INB is restricted and must be approved. To justify access, users must demonstrate a legitimate need for access to confidential department data.  Information Technology Services (ITS) requires signature authorization from your Dean, Director, or Department Head, and the Banner module Data Steward in order to process all access requests.  Signature authorization is required to satisfy State Audit requirements.

The Data Stewards are listed below for each of the Banner Modules. Example: If you are seeking access to the Banner Student Module, you must deliver your form to Mr. Cedric Arrington for final signature.  If approved, Mr. Arrington would then forward your form to ITS.
