WestConn Banner Services

About Banner

Banner is enterprise administrative suite that manages the university's production student, financial aid, alumni, and finance data. Banner is manufactured by SunGard/SCT and is used by all CSU institutions.

Access to Banner

There are two means of working with Banner data:

  • Banner Self Serve (BSS)
  • Internet Native Banner (INB)

Banner Self Serve

Banner Self Serve is website that allows individuals to access Banner information that is pertinent to them.

BSS allows students to self-register for classes, query Financial Aid information, make payments, and more. For faculty, BSS provides them with access to their class rosters, student academic history information, the ability to electronic submit grades, and other information.

As of Fall 2005, BSS is available only through the WestConnduit campus portal.

Internet Native Banner

Internet Native Banner is used by departments responsible for the management of Banner information (e.g. Admissions, Alumni, Cashier's Office, Financial Aid, Fiscal Affairs, Housing and Residence Life, Human Resources, and Registrar).

In addition to the core Banner departments, INB is also used for the following functions:

  • recruitment
  • posting charges
  • budget query
  • online requisition

Access to INB for these functions are coordinated through Admissions (recruitment), Cashier's Office (posting charges), and Fiscal Affairs (budget query and online requisitions).

If you need INB access, please contact the appropriate department.

Off-Campus Access to Banner

For security reasons, INB access from off-campus is restricted. For more information, please see the Guide to Using INB from Off-Campus.

There are no restrictions to using BSS from off-campus. Access to BSS from off-campus is also through the WestConnduit portal.
