Banner 9 Upgrade & Training Info

February, 2018

ITS is excited to announce that our campus is upgrading to Banner 9. This new release delivers a number of important enhancements, including a modern user interface, the ability to use your UNCW email credentials to login, and enhanced navigation and process management tools. It will also provide greater flexibility, as we will be able to run Banner on any browser, and it will no longer require JAVA.

The first portion of this upgrade will occur over the March 9 – 12 weekend and will be communicated in detail via future notices to the campus.

In order to prepare for the new Banner 9 interface, ITS is offering instructor-led and online navigation training to UNCW staff & faculty who are interested. Click here for information on how to sign up for any of the available workshops.

Lastly, the Banner 8 system will remain accessible until October 2018 in order to provide as smooth a transition to Banner 9 as possible.
