Why are we upgrading to Banner 9?

Banner is TTU’s centralized academic and administration system for areas such as Records, Registration, Payroll, Accounting, etc.  The provider, Elllucian, has announced the end-of-life for Banner 8 to be December 31, 2018.  As a result, we must upgrade to Banner 9.   

We in Enterprise Application Systems strongly encourage Administrative Users to actively test Banner 9 in our TEST environment and to make use of the multitude of training materials at the link below.  Please contact your EAS support representative with any questions.
