Important Changes to Self-Service Banner (SSB) Registration

The Self-Service Banner registration system will be upgraded from Version 8 to Version 9 beginning with this registration cycle.

Beginning March 2, 2020, when you log on to Self-Service Banner, after you click STUDENT INFORMATION, you will see two new options: ENHANCED SELF-SERVICE BANNER (Version 9) and BASIC SELF-SERVICE (Version 8). The Version 8 link will take you to the interface you used in the past to register for classes.

The Version 9 link will take you to the new and enhanced version of registration and related functions. In Version 9, you will be able to create schedule plans in advance of registration. When it is time for you to register, you will be able to add your classes from your plan directly onto your schedule to expedite the registration process. In addition, you can prepare plans that your advisor can review and approve online in advance of registration.

Please visit for more information about the upgrade as well as videos and documentation supporting the transition to Self-Service Banner Version 9 Registration.

Here is What You Need to Know!

Registration-Summer and Fall 2020

Registration for current students for Summer and Fall 2020 will begin on Monday, March 23, 2020, and most time tickets are staggered based on a student’s class year or level. Most students can use Self-Service Banner (SSB) to register for classes online. Self-Service Banner is accessed through DORI, the University’s portal. Students must have a Multipass account to log on to DORI and access the Banner system. All degree-seeking students except first-semester freshmen receive time tickets to register for classes, and the table below identifies the online start- and end-times for registration for each class year.

Time tickets are assigned two weeks prior to the start of registration. To check your time ticket in Self-Service Banner, go to Student Information > Registration > Registration Status.

First-semester freshmen will be registered by their academic advisors for their first semester and may use SSB for subsequent semesters.

Plan Your Courses for Registration with RAPP

RAPP (Review Academic Program Progress) is a tool for students to review their progress through their academic programs and identify the classes they still need to take. Students considering changing their academic program may also use RAPP to review how their coursework to date applies to the new program, and which additional courses must still be fulfilled. Please note that this is not an official degree evaluation and is intended only for the purposes of registration planning.

To use RAPP, log into DORI, then go to Self-Service Banner > Student Information > Enhanced Self-Service Banner (Version 9) > Student Profile > Review Academic Program Progress (RAPP).

Prepare for Registration

Since online registration will begin before the University opens for the day, it is critical that you confirm your ability to register for classes before your Registration Time Ticket begins. Check in Self-Service Banner for holds that stop registration, and make sure you have a Registration Time Ticket.

Also, take time to review for important upgrade changes beginning with this registration cycle.

The online registration period for Summer 2020 runs from March 23 through May 11, 2020. If you wish to register after May 11 for a class that begins after May 11, see your advisor. All students should review the Summer 2020 Drop, Withdrawal Deadlines and Refund Policy.
