Recent Milestones

  • Testing was completed by the core Banner user offices on June 7th
  • The UNH and GSC Banner 9 Student production environments were deployed on June 10th
    NOTE: The current plan is that the UNH and GSC Banner 8 production environments will remain available for usage until the end of October. This will allow all offices to transition to Banner 9 throughout the summer and early fall.
  • Based on survey results, we held two overview/demo sessions. Information from the sessions is available under Useful Links & Documents at the bottom of this page.

Upcoming Events

  • We plan to open up the UNH and GSC Banner 9 Production environments to all Banner Student users in July
  • Transition of all Banner Student users over to Banner 9 by early Fall

Quick Refresher on the Banner 9 Project

Banner 9 is a newer version of Banner which will provide a more modern and user-friendly experience. Changes are generally cosmetic in nature and all Banner functionality will remain intact. This upgrade is a necessity as vendor support for the current iteration of Banner (Banner 8) terminates at the end of 2018.

Summary of Banner 9 advantages and features:

  • Eliminates browser compatibility problems
  • Improves and simplifies the upgrade process
  • Updated look and feel
  • Mobile friendly
