The Banner Overview & Basic Navigation Unit is a series of educational tutorials available for users who access the Banner Student Information System. This basic unit has been developed to help you become familiar with navigating through Banner prior to any hands-on training that may be required.

Being familiar with the concepts presented here, prior to attending any other Banner training, may help relieve some of the apprehension you may be feeling due to the implementation of the new system. Do not worry, you are not alone; it is normal to resist change. We hope that providing this basic unit of instruction, in this fashion, will aid in a more enjoyable, beneficial learning experience.
