Banner 9 upgrade

New College of Florida has completed the upgrade to Banner 9. This new release delivers a number of important enhancements, including a modern user interface, enhanced navigation and process management tools, and new functionality across the Student, HR and Finance functions. It will also give us greater flexibility as we will be able to run Banner on any browser and on tablets.

To date, most of the feedback that other institutions have provided indicates that getting used to the new interface and navigation takes minimal effort (like an update to the interface for Gmail).

Because we only upgraded the administrative modules at this time, there will be little to no impact on our students.

To see what’s new and for navigation tips, check out these resources:
