Student Information System (Banner)

Service Description

Banner is the primary student information system at Binghamton University, State University of New York, offering information access for students, faculty, and staff.

Data contained in Banner can be accessed in one of three ways:

  • User-friendly Self Service Banner (SSB), also called BU BRAIN
  • Advanced version called Internet Native Banner (INB)
  • Operational Data Store (ODS)
  • Each requires a different level of access for data and each serves a different role.

New University employees should speak with his/her supervisor or department chair to determine what level of access will be needed to perform job duties. Supervisors of new employees will initiate the access process.

Use of xTender may be needed to view documents (such as completed and scanned forms) associated with student records.
