Banner 9 Migration

Scheduled for 2018

Illinois Institute of Technology will transition to Banner v.9 during the 2018-2019 academic year.  This is a complete replacement of the Banner system currently used by students, faculty and staff.   The Banner 9 Migration Project has been going on for a few years, as we have completely rebuilt the underlying infrastructure on which the Banner system was running.  Illinois Tech is now utilizing state-of-the-art servers and storage that can be scaled for demand and capacity.  The Banner forms you see every day will change and have a new look and feel.  The new Banner system is also mobile-ready and can be used on your phone, tablet, and computer.  You will no longer be restricted as to which browser you use because the major Internet browers, e.g., Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE, are ALL compatible!  You won't have to worry about Java updates 'breaking' things!
