Banner Upgrade Over Fall Break Weekend

October 4, 2004
A new version of the SCT Banner applications - Banner 6 - will be implemented during the Fall Break weekend, October 15-17. The Banner and BearWeb systems will be down after 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 15, through the weekend. See below for a list of other services that will be unavailable during the upgrade.

The changes brought by Banner 6 are fairly minimal for most system users. Documentation about the changes and revised training documents are available to all Banner users here. Please take a few minutes before October 18 to go to this documentation site. Everyone will want to at least look at the "What's New in Version 6" reference page and view the brief "On-line Training" presentation.

Installation instructions will be provided to all Banner users on October 17. The new installer will be available for you to run before using Banner on Monday, October 18.

Baylor must stay up-to-date with Banner software releases in order to receive all required regulatory program code and to take advantage of vendor-provided software enhancements.
