Banner/WebSIS FAQs

What is Banner?
Banner is a web-based, administrative software application managed by Ellucian specifically for higher education institutions. It is the main database for student, employee, and financial records. There is only one Banner database but two distinct ways to view the data: Self-Service Banner (WebSIS) and Internet Native Banner (INB). Scroll down for Banner 9 Training Resources.

What is Self-Service Banner (WebSIS)?

What is Internet Native Banner (INB)?
Internet Native Banner is a more robust online tool, typically restricted to department heads (e.g., Vice Presidents, Deans, Chairpersons, and Directors) who require a good deal of detailed information. The level of access to Internet Native Banner is determined by the Banner Data Custodians.  

Who are the Banner Data Custodians?
Since Banner is an integrated system, each area has assigned one individual to serve as the Data Custodian of departmental data. Data Custodians are responsible for deciding a user's level of Banner access for navigation and reporting purposes. The data custodians are as follows:
