What is Banner?

Banner is an administrative software application developed specifically for higher education institutions. Banner consists of five integrated software modules: Advancement, Finance, Financial Aid, Human Resources, and the Student module.

Banner has two types of access: Self-Service and Admin.

Banner Self-Service

All faculty, students, and staff members are given Self-Service Banner (SSB) accounts. Self-Service is used for activities such as class registration and viewing pay stubs. If you do not know your Banner ID and PIN, you can get that here: Get My Banner ID and Pin​.

Once you have your ID and PIN, you are ready to Log in to Banner SSB.

Banner Admin (INB)

Faculty and staff use Banner Admin (formerly known as INB) to manage financial aid, financial, student, and human resource information. See Access to Banner for more information about requesting access. (Note: as of version 9, Banner INB has been renamed to Banner Admin.)

Once your log-in is squared away, you are ready to Log in to Banner Admin.
