Banner

Banner is an administrative database that houses all student-related data; essentially tracking student activity from recruitment to graduation. It provides data integrity, accessibility and flexibility for enhanced decision-making, and improved service to students. The Banner database is directly linked with the Student Information System (SIS), which provides secure online access to student information. Students can access financial aid information, register for classes, check/order transcripts, pay tuition online, and/or perform many other student related transactions. Faculty can access class lists and submit grades.

Please consult the Quicknote What is Banner? found on the Helpdesk website (http://www.umflint.edu/helpdesk) for more information.
