BANNER is a suite of applications that maintains and integrates Hofstra’s academic and administrative data. Designed for higher education, Banner processes all transactions in an Oracle database.
Members of the Hofstra community interact with Banner in two formats
Hofstra Online accessible on the My.Hofstra.edu portal.
Banner Proper accessible to staff and administration on networked computers.
Hofstra Online, aka Banner Web, allows the Hofstra community to view information and transact with the Banner database in real time through an encrypted and secured session on the My.Hofstra.edu portal. Functionality is dependent upon a user’s role as student, faculty, staff, advisor, applicant and/or alumni.
Banner Proper, aka Banner Production or Banner INB, is the forms based system used by functional area personnel and academic administrators to maintain and view data, run jobs and processes and view imaged documents. All access is granted relevant to job responsibility.
