Banner Go-Live and End User Training for Faculty and Staff

 Final preparations are being made for the Banner Financial Aid implementation and the Banner Student registration Go-live. Financial Aid goes live at the end of January and on February 15, students will begin registering for the Summer 2006 semester on the new Banner system. Look for the Banner informational tables at the Brighton and DCC campuses during the Summer and Fall 2006 registration weeks--February 13 and March 20.


The majority of end users at the College will be using Banner Self Service (SS), the "point and click" online Banner interface. Training for faculty and staff on Banner Self Service for Student is being provided in a variety of formats in order to accommodate tight schedules and a variety of learning styles.


Banner Self Service for Student training options include face-to-face training, interactive video training—available online via the MCC web and soon to be available on a Banner CD—and written documentation. The Banner Student training CD will be mailed to the permanent addresses of all MCC faculty and currently active adjuncts in early February.
