Banner Basics

Banner Basics is no longer offered as a prerequisite course. It is highly recommended that you thoroughly review these materials before taking either the Banner Finance & Budget class and/or the Banner General Student class. The materials below cover basic navigational skills and help provide a knowledge base on which all other Banner training sessions build. Participants are also provided with the information to create a personal menu of frequently used forms in their Banner account.

Audience: New Banner users.

All Banner-related questions should be directed to the Banner Hotline at bannerhotline@odu.edu.

To request a Banner Account, visit the Midas Request Process page for step-by-step instructions. For a complete list of all Banner Accesses available, visit the ITS Access page.
