Banner 9 Continues Moving Forward

Banner 9 Admin will operate very similarly to Banner 8 (a.k.a. “Internet Native Banner”) and uses the same data, but it looks different. Banner 9 Admin works completely in the Chrome web browser, and its modern user interface also works on mobile devices. After the whole conversion is complete, we plan to make it available from the Internet so you can use it wherever you are. To access additional Banner 9 documentation, please visit

IT Services is working directly with the offices that are responsible for each part of Banner, and those offices will work with you to address process training, support, etc. For example, if you use Finance forms to look up account balances, the Finance department will help you with this. If you are an advisor who runs degree audits through Banner, the Registrar’s office will help with this.

Most of the modules have already transitioned to the new version, with only Student still in process. Go live dates for all of the modules are:

  • Advancement (Sept. 10, 2017)
  • Financial Aid (Jan. 19, 2018)
  • Accounts Receivable (April 17, 2018)
  • Finance Admin and Self Service (May 1, 2018)
  • Human Resources (May 21, 2018)
  • Student (June 14, 2018 and November, 2018 for uAchieve users)

The old version (Banner 8) will continue to work for a number of months after Banner 9 Admin is available, which should make for an easy transition between the two. Until Banner 8 is decommissioned, you will be able to use Banner 8 and 9 simultaneously. Each module will have its own cut-off date for Banner 8, and those are shown below:

  • Advancement (July 1, 2018)
  • Financial Aid (Sept. 15, 2018)
  • Accounts Receivable (Sept. 15, 2018)
  • Finance Admin and Self Service (May 1, 2018)
  • Human Resources (May 21, 2018)
  • Student (Dec. 31, 2018)

BannerWeb, used by most everyone throughout the University, is being replaced with Banner 9 “Self-Service”. The first module, Finance Self-Service, was implemented together with the Finance Admin module in early May, with the rest of the modules to follow later in 2018 or 2019.
