Banner Gets a New Look and Feel

Banner, Macalester’s administrative database, recently released a new version, Banner 9. We are currently using Banner 8 and upgrading to Banner 9. We will be upgrading some parts of Banner this weekend and other parts will be upgraded this summer.

Services affected: Banner INB, Banner for Administrative users.

Services NOT affected: Self-Service Banner pages for students, faculty, and staff.

What is being done: Banner administrative pages are being upgraded from version 8 to version 9. New navigation options and a new look and feel will be added to all pages.

When is this taking place: Banner General and Student modules, April 8, 2017. Banner Financial Aid, Accounts Receivable, Finance, Position Control and Payroll, June 2017.

What you need to do: Get started using Banner 9. If your business processes use Banner forms that start with G or S, starting Monday April 10, 2017 you will see the Banner 9 environment. If your business processes use Banner forms that start with R, T, F, P, or N, you will see the Banner 9 environment in June 2017.

Further communications: Reminder notices will come out prior to June 2017. We are in the process of scheduling training for early June which will showcase navigation, look and feel changes as well as changes specific to the pages you use most frequently.
