Banner Support Information

Banner is an administrative software package used in higher education and developed by Ellucian.

Binghamton University uses Banner to maintain integrated data for finance, human resources, student, and financial aid systems.

PLEASE NOTE - The data contained in this system is the property of Binghamton University. 

BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY • Acceptable Use Policy • University Student Systems
One of the primary goals of the campus integrated student systems is to provide users with easily accessible information to assist them in the fulfillment of their responsibilities. All persons having access to the University Student Systems and information contained within should understand that they are bound by a number of ethical and legal considerations regarding access to and sharing of the information maintained in the database. This includes individuals with the right to view information within the database, as well as users who have job responsibilities for data entry and reports.

The data contained in the system is the property of Binghamton University. Access to and release of information is restricted except as needed to fulfill one's assigned duties and responsibilities. Therefore, no individual either internal or external to the University should access Student Systems information for any purpose other than for a business "need to know" reason.

In the event that there is a question regarding the appropriateness of a request for information from the database, the appropriate supervisor and/or Binghamton University office (Admissions, Financial Aid, Registrar, or Student Accounts) should be contacted to resolve the issue.


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.

If you require access to SSB, you may request it online. If you have questions, please refer to the list of security approvers.
