Banner 9 Migration

Scheduled for 2018

Illinois Institute of Technology will transition to Banner v.9 on October 26, 2018. This upgrade will be a complete replacement of the Banner system currently in use - Banner v.8 - which is used by students, faculty, and staff. The Banner forms you currently see every day will change and have a new look and feel

The Banner 9 Migration Project began a few years ago, as the Office of Technology Services had to completely rebuild 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 new Banner system also has a mobile-friendly, responsive design, so it can be easily used on your phone, tablet, and computer. You will no longer be restricted with respect to which browser you use because the major Internet browers, e.g., Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer, are ALL compatible with Banner v.9! You no longer will have to worry about Java updates 'breaking' things!
