Banner training and documentation


  • How can I find Banner training and documentation for faculty and staff?


  • Banner


  • Follow this link for Banner 8 navigation training and documentation 
  • The online Introduction to Banner training consists of two components that are important for new users:
    • a PDF presentation with specifics on Banner at Miami
    • an interactive tutorial from SCT on Banner Fundamentals (requires Adobe Flash player)
  • The training will cover:
    • How to get access and log on to Internet-native Banner
    • How to access online help and documentation for Banner
    • How to identify and navigate elements of the Banner Main Menu, Banner forms, menus and buttons
    • How to create and modify your personal menu
    • How to perform a query for a person and non-person
    • How to enter account info for a new user
  • Follow this link for Banner 9 navigation training and documentation 



  • Training is intended for Internet Native Banner users, not BannerWeb users
    • If you have questions about which system you'll be using, please view the beginning of the PDF presentation for relevant information
  • Training does not address individual departmental forms; it is focused on navigation only and is designed for staff new to Internet-native Banner or those who want a basic review of how to use the system
  • Before working with student data in Banner, follow this link to review Miami's FERPA guidelines
