Ellucian Banner is an enterprise application that the campus uses to manage administrative information ranging from student grades and schedules to human resources and budget information. Banner is an integrated database system, meaning multiple applications share information as well as storing information separately. Administrative Banner, commonly referenced as Banner, is an interface used by campus business departments to access the Banner data. WebOPUS is a self-service application that is commonly used by individuals to access data that pertains specifically to their own records.
Access to Banner requires an individual account which can be requested by your director or supervisor using Request AIS and Banner Access. Once an account is established, your director or supervisor may request specific permissions from the data steward for Banner module for which you need access.
All students, faculty, staff, and alumni have access to WebOPUS using their FLC network login account. The level of permissions in WebOPUS is dependent upon the roles you may have in the Banner system. For example, some employees are also former students or alumni, so they have permissions to see their student records as well as employee records.
If you have questions about requesting Banner accounts or permissions, WebOPUS, or other Banner information, please contact askIT@fortlewis.edu or call 970-247-7444.
