Why?

Recent updates to the most current versions of Banner 8 and Oracle software were performed by IT. As a result, Banner INB (Internet Native Banner) users will have improved access.

Impact

Installation is required upon first use. Internet Explorer will no longer be required to access Banner. Access to Banner Self Service (bannerweb.wpi.edu) is unchanged.

Benefits

Banner INB is now accessed using a "browser-less" method that runs from a desktop shortcut. The updates enable WPI to receive extended support of Banner 8, so usage can continue as the next ETP transitions are planned.

Action Needed

Between January 23 - February 4, please use instructions in the article below to update Java and install the shortcut to access the Banner database.
