Banner 9 Upgrade
Effective Date: August 3, 2018
On Friday, August 3, from 6:00pm to 12:00pm, we will be upgrading Banner INB, our enterprise resource planning system, to version 9. Version 9 is the latest release delivered by Ellucian that provides a modern user interface and moves us away from the Oracle forms that will soon no longer be supported. Banner 9 will be accessible from any internet browser and Java will no longer be required to run Banner services. During the upgrade, connectivity to Banner INB and Banner 9 will be unavailable.
Please note that Banner Self-service remains unaffected by this upgrade of Banner INB to Banner 9.
- Fresh look and feel
- Improved navigation to administrative pages
- Better browser support
- Streamlined upgrades and conserved resources
Impact on College Community
Banner will be unavailable – Access to Banner INB, Banner 9, and Banner Self-service will be unavailable during the upgrade.
Each Banner 9 user will need to clear the browser cache – after this upgrade, it will be necessary to clear your browser cache in order to have Banner 9 function properly for you. If you need assistance in clearing your cache, please contact the AIT help desk at 630.752.4357 (HELP.)
Banner 9 will be accessible via the Wheaton Portal – After the upgrade, Banner 9 will be accessible via the Wheaton Portal (https://portal.wheaton.edu) on the Employee page. Log into the Wheaton Portal with your NetID credentials, select the Employee link on the left-side menu, and then select the “Banner 9 Admin Pages” link in the Help and Resources portlet.
Existing Banner INB bookmarks and shortcuts – After the upgrade, any Banner INB bookmarks or shortcuts you’ve saved will no longer work. All access to Banner 9 should be via the Wheaton Portal as described above.
This upgrade is the result of many people across campus working together to deploy this change. Significant contributors include:
- Human Resources
- Registrar’s Office
- Student Financial Services
- Academic & Institutional Technology
Thank you all for your teamwork!
