MCC Banner Student Module Thursday, March 4, 2004
What is Banner? • One database with multiple systems • Multiple systems: Alumni/Development Finance Financial Aid Human Resources Student
Banner • Forms…not screens • Form Names…not screen numbers • Information is entered once and then displayed on various forms throughout all systems • No longer storing the same data in separate databases (like SIS+) • Example: One general person record who may also be an admission’s recruit, current student, college employee, MCC graduate or student aide. One record fully describes the person
Banner • Forms • “Screens” that display data taken from the one record maintained in system. • Example: One Local Address is displayed on a number of different forms in Banner. • Tables • Lists maintained in Banner and used to enter data. (Similar to a data element) • Example: Hold Types – there are specific hold types entered on the validation table which can be assigned to a record. • Rules • Rules are entered on rule forms, which are made up of data elements which have been defined in validation tables. • Rules are an action. • Example: B holds prevent transcript production & future registrations.
Icon Key Info Block Title Bar Form Layout: All forms are going to look different, because they have different uses, and display different information. They all have similar characteristics. Below is a screen shot of SPAPERS – General Person Form within the Student Module Radio Button Fields Hint or Stat Line Checkboxes Pull-down List
Banner Navigation Accessing Forms: There are several methods to access the desired form, using the Main Menu.

Sub-Mod Managers • Congratulations! You have been chosen to be a Banner Student Sub-Module Manager. • Why you? • Because you are considered an expert in an SIS+ process • You are the best person to lead a team to build your area of expertise in Banner
What to do next? • Relax! • Implementing Banner scares all of us. • Plan to attend Marie Gibson’s fabulous “Banner Navigation” seminar. (Quell your fear!) • Think about who should be a member of your sub-mod team. Think small teams with hard-working members! (Small numbers, high creativity & energy) • Analyze your work. • Lists your tasks, processes and procedures • Determine which processes are MANDATORY and which processes are NICE but not necessary • With the help of your Student Mod Leader, you’ll begin to plan/document BPAs for your area (Yes, you’ll be able to use cool Banner words like BPA very soon!)
What is a BPA? • BPA=Business Process Analysis • Why bother to document our current work in SIS when we’ll do it differently in Banner? • Understanding the details of our current processes will help us make decisions about how to use Banner. • Understanding the problems with our current processes will help us remember to fix them in Banner. • We’ll be very busy --- documentation will help us remain on track and make good decisions as we move to Banner.
What is a BPA? • We’ll teach you how to create a BPA and work with you to prioritize your “to-do” list • We’ll triage your “to-do” list and create BPAs for your “must have” processes first. • Remember the 80/20 rule and focus on processes that affect the most customers. • These BPAs will help when you document the Banner processes. You will remain the expert!
Next Steps • Step 1: Set Meeting with your module leader • Step 2: Plan work team • Step 3: Set aside weekly Banner work/meeting time • Step 4: List all of your business processes • Step 5: Prioritize your BPAs • (See, you are using that cool Banner lingo!) • Step 6: Begin BPA-ing • (Really cool Banner lingo!) • Step 7: Review Student Task list to plan future steps • Step 8: Think positive. No tears after reading task list.
