Registration Adjustment Requests by Faculty and Staff

Banner© Workflow is a management software that automates, simplifies, and directs the flow of information. Authorized staff and faculty will be able to access Banner Self-Service to submit registration adjustment requests. This automated process will trigger the appropriate business process logic, rules and conditions. Activities that once required manual triggers (notifications, approvals and other processes), will happen automatically, speeding completion of tasks while ensuring consistency and accuracy. The following topics and features of the new workflow will be discussed:

  • The customized, web-based form that auto-populates course information and student registration schedule and course status
  • The audit trail of approval stages (e.g.; instructor, academic department, and etc.)
  • The automatic updates to Banner after approval is provided
  • The automatic/ standard notifications to users and students once the process is completed
  • An overview of policies concerning adds, drops and withdrawals

The purpose for this new automated process is to create more efficient operations and to give better and faster customer service!
