Banner System Improvements to Begin


February 10, 2017

Beginning this March, the Banner system interface will be upgraded, in phases, over the next two years. 

“Banner is the most heavily-used system on campus by staff, faculty and students for a wide array of administrative functions,” said Patrick Versace, assistant vice chancellor of enterprise applications for information technology. “Fourteen of the 17 campuses in the UNC system use its platform.”

The first phase affects Banner INB (Internet Native Banner), not Banner Self Service. Customers will enjoy a greatly improved, user-friendly interface which is not java or browser dependent!

Go-live dates for the Banner INB upgrade are organized by module:
