Enhanced SSB Registration Version 9 (v9) Coming in March 2020!

The registration system will be upgraded for the registration period beginning on March 23, 2020, for the summer and fall 2020 terms. The enhanced features of v9 will 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.

Students will be able to begin creating registration “plans” on March 2, 2020 and will be able to register for classes based on their class-level and registration time-ticket.Please note, students must use Banner 9 Registration in order to register for classes from a pre-planned schedule.

See details below to support the transition from Version 8 to Version 9. Students will still have the option to use Version 8 to register for classes with this upcoming registration cycle but are encouraged to use Version 9. The PLAN YOUR SCHEDULE option is only available in Version 9.
