A Service of IET

Banner is UC Davis' primary application for Staff and Faculty to access student information. Since its original implementation in 1992, the system has been updated to reflect changing requirements, functional enhancements, and technological advances.  Banner is a proprietary product from Ellucian.

Banner is supported by Enterprise Student Applications. 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.
