Banner, a third-party system developed by Ellucian, is the University's main administrative computing system used campus-wide. Ellucian is in the process of upgrading Self-Service Banner (SSB) from Version 8 (v8) to Version 9 (v9).  As a result, Duquesne University will be transitioning from v8 to v9 as well.

Enhanced SSB Registration Version 9 is Here!

The registration system has been upgraded to a new and improved version. The enhanced features of v9 enable students to prepare multiple class schedule options in advance of registration and save them as “plans.” When it is time to register, students can select a plan and proceed to register from the pre-planned schedule.

Please reference the User Guides and Watch the Videos, accessible below, for details and instructions to use the upgraded registration system.
