Banner Admin

Banner Admin

Banner is a software system that is used throughout the University for processing and tracking information.  Banner Finance is used to track budgets, pay invoices, track grants, process payroll, manage labor and produce the financial statements for the university.  Access to Banner Finance is given to those individuals who have responsibilities in those areas. 

This information can be accessed using the self-service website that provides a traditional web experience in looking at information and querying for financial information.   It has limited abilities in creating financial transactions.   Banner Admin is a more enhanced web experience that has all of the abilities necessary to create and query financial information.

Security to Banner Finance is done on multiple levels.  You need to request permission to the Finance modules of Banner and you need to be given permission to see certain funds and organization codes.  If given these two levels of security the user should be able to carry out their roles in their various job duties.
