Banner 9 Communications Archive

  • Banner 9 is coming to Ferris in May 2018!

    The upgraded internet-native Banner experience will result in an improved user interface and navigation experience.

    Processes currently conducted in Banner 8 INB will be the same in Banner 9, the primary change will be how users navigate the system. Other highlights include:

    • An improved search functionality that allows for searches by page name, process or function, and side navigation folders.

    • Color-coded notifications that are more informative and visible.

    • Admin Page (Forms) names will not change (ex. SPAIDEN).

    • Related pages are easier to find and access.


    NOTE: Self-Serve Banner is not changing at this time.

    Implementation begins the week of May 14, 2018.


    Up to date information can be found in MyFSU:
    Employee Tab > My Workplace > Banner 9 Portlet


    In the Portlet you can get a video sneak peek of the Navigation from Ellucian.


    New keyboard shortcuts for Banner 9 are also in the Portlet. Save them today so you are ready for the transition.

    Information Sessions covering the Banner 9 Admin Pages (formerly INB) will be held in April and May 2018.

    Dates and times will be announced soon.
