Banner 9 Upgrade

Ellucian is in the process of upgrading the Banner 8 INB user interface to Banner 9 Admin. With any system upgrade, we know that people often grow concerned over what will change, and our team has been working over the past few months to understand and anticipate those changes. We will be reaching out to campus offices to coordinate testing and training as we work to complete this upgrade. We are targeting completion for December 2018. We recommend you begin getting acquainted with Banner 9 Admin in Pre-Production now.

Refer to the Banner 8 INB to Banner 9 Admin Transition Help Article for more information
