Getting Started

Banner

To obtain a Banner user account, first confirm with your supervisor that your job duties require access to Banner. If access is needed, your supervisor will contact their designated SIMS user access owner, who will initiate the user request. In some cases, your supervisor and the SIMS user access owner may be the same person. If you or your supervisor need to know the name of your SIMS user access owner, please contact the SIMS team. As part of the user request workflow, you will ultimately receive information via email with the steps you must complete in order to obtain Banner access.

If you have questions about this process or the status of the request, it is best to start with your SIMS user access owner. If necessary, he/she will reach out to the SIMS team.

Though the following training videos are included as part of the user request process, we have included them below should you need to reference them at a later date. The following videos, which include audio, total about 27 minutes in length. Since these videos were produced by Ellucian, the company that licenses Banner, you will notice the instructor makes references to different versions of Banner as well as a website containing quick reference guides. Please disregard these specific references. The primary purpose of these videos is to familiarize you with the Banner user interface and provide some basic guidance on navigating the application.

NOTE: For the purpose of this website and in practice, we sometimes refer to “Banner” as “SIMS.” Though we use these terms interchangeably, please know we are referring to the same application – Banner.
