Banner is the software in use by the UC Davis Student Information System. Since its original implementation in 1992, the system has been updated to reflect changing requirements, functional enhancements, and technological advances. The version now in use at UC Davis is version 8.
Banner is a proprietary product from Ellucian.
The purpose of the Banner product is to hold student record information in a centralized database while making the information available to legitimate users campus-wide.
Banner is supported by Student Information Systems - Technology Services (SIS-TS), a unit of Student Affairs Office of Technology (SAOT). The UC Davis offices served include: Student Affairs Office, Office of the University Registrar, Financial Aid Office, Undergraduate Admissions, Office of Graduate Studies, Student Accounting & Financial Services, and Services for International Students and Scholars.
