Banner 9 Admin Pages will be available to all active Banner users on Oct.23


As many of you are aware, our current Banner system, which we have used at Western since the mid-1990s, must be upgraded to the latest version – version 9 (B9) by the end of October. This deadline is crucial: If the upgrade were not completed on time, regulatory filings such as W-2, 1099 and Pell Grant reporting would not be available to campus users. This upgrade process now is close to completion.



  • On Oct. 23, Banner 9 Admin Pages will be opened to all existing active Banner users. A link to Banner 9 Production Environment will be available through MyWestern/Employee/Banner 9. Training videos and quick sheets are also available in this new channel. 
  • If you are currently performing Banner activities in Web4U, you will continue to do so without any changes. This upgrade is only for Banner Admin Pages in replacement of the current Banner INB forms; there is no change to Web4U at this time. 
  • If you missed any of the Banner 9 training in September, there are still many classes available throughout October! These Cross Function training classes include a general navigation video and live demonstration of some of the most commonly used functions for Finance, HR and Student modules. Go to our PageUp Learning Library and register for a class or walk-ins are always welcome!  



A special thank you to our Steering Committee, Divisional Leads and the entire Banner 9 project team. It is with your support, collaboration and hard work that allows us to meet this October deadline!

If you have any questions about this roll-out, please contact Chuck Lanham, Vice Provost for Information Technology/Chief Information Officer at 360-650-4476.
