Overview 

The New School uses the Banner suite of software developed by Ellucian for the core administration of its information systems. Ellucian’s suite of products are modular and is used to manage the data for all aspects of the university from Advancement, to Finance, to Financial Aid, to Human Resources and Payroll, and all aspects of student enrollment management.

Banner is a robust and administratively complex information systems environment, that is ever changing to meet the demands placed upon the staff and administrative offices across campus. Before identifying additional enterprise systems that meet a need, it is always best to consider first if Banner can meet that need.

Getting Started 

To get started with Internet Native Banner (INB) requires an initial request to be made from the supervisor of any person who needs access. Approval from the Data Stewards for each Banner module that the person will access must be granted and the person must also attend a training session that familiarizes them with navigation in the Banner product. However, each departmental area is responsible for training their own staff on the daily use and best practices of using Banner.
