Administrative System Suite (Banner)


The core Banner suite is made up of the Advancement, Finance, Financial Aid, Human Resources, and Student modules, and features additional functionality in document management, job scheduling, reporting, and workflow.

Banner Advancement
Used by University Advancement for all transactions related to giving to the University. Through self-service, Advancement Officers who may be traveling can access information to aid in their fundraising efforts.

Banner Finance
Tracks and manages all financial transactions, using an account string referred to as the FOAPAL, regardless of where the transaction initiates. Tuition, gifts, expenses, accounts payable, and receivable are all tracked here. The Finance module also ties in directly with the Accounts Receivable portion of Banner, which is shared between Finance and Student Accounts. Self-Service Finance users are able to take advantage of functionality for departmental budget information and reporting.

Banner Financial Aid
Allows our Financial Aid team to plan, allocate, and disburse University Financial Aid dollars to our students. Self-service features allows new and returning students to view and accept their awards online.

Banner Human Resources
Manages all employee data, including payroll, and benefits. Self-service features include the ability for employees to submit their time and leave online via the E-Timesheets system, check their pay stubs, view the leave balances, and check their benefits.

Banner Student
Manages all student, faculty, and course data. It is utilized all over campus by colleges administrators, program assistants, and business areas to help track and record a student's progress, manage enrollments, build the class schedules and make faculty assignments, manage the admissions process, and much more. Some of the features of the self-service environment include the ability for students to register and add and drop classes, view their holds, perform unofficial degree evaluations and access unofficial transcripts.  In addition, faculty and advisors can use self-service to aid in advising students in their progression to graduation.
