Banner by Ellucian is a fully integrated suite of software that the College uses to manage student and administrative information as well as conduct business.  Integrated software such as Banner are often referred to as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.  They are designed to integrate an organization's business processes and flow information across departments.

What is the difference between Banner Admin Pages and SSB

There are two Banner user interfaces: Banner Admin Pages and SSB (Self Service Banner). Access to Banner Admin Pages is restrictive. Designated staff are given a level of access that allows them to perform the day-to-day operations related to their work.  The SSB interface, accessible through the eCommon portal, is available to all faculty, staff and students.  SSB allows users to manage their personal information and access other online services.

How do I get access to Banner?
