What’s new in Banner® 9

New and improved Banner 9 Self-Service applications


What’s new in Banner® Student:

  • Attendance Tracking offers faculty members an easy, all-new tool for documenting student attendance, saving your registrar and financial aid officers time. Furthermore, it can be accessed via Ellucian Mobile as an added application.
  • Advising Student Profile now consolidates a student’s profile, education and career path on a single page. It is newly accessible to advisors and students, allowing for truly personalized advice that helps students make better academic decisions.
  • Student Self-Service now includes Class Roster and View Grades functionalities:
    • Class Roster lets teaching staff review their students’ academic profiles and schedules, communicate with students over email, print class rosters and more.
    • View Grades lets teaching staff, students, and their advisors view a student’s academic progress.
  • Faculty Grade Entry now offers teaching staff mobile capability for entering assignment grades and posting midterm, final and incomplete grades. The application can then automatically compute a final grade. To make things even easier, they can also import grades directly from their existing spreadsheets or their learning management system.
  • Events Management helps you plan, manage and monitor both virtual and in-person events such as first-year orientation, seminars and conferences. Attendees can easily register online and they will even receive automatic updates about details such as time and location—so your events will be better attended and you can invest in events that pay off.
  • Banner® Registration has been updated with intuitive registration tools and a mobile-friendly design to make it easier than ever for students, advisors and administrators to use. It now includes seamless integration with Ellucian Degree WorksTM, advisor access and registration planning via Student Education Planner. These new features:
    • Give advisors the tools they need to help students plan for success
