Banner Consolidated is HERE!!

 

What is BannerSUnited?

A New Experience. A New "U"

In recognizing the need to provide students with similar experiences across campuses, SU System has consolidated its multiple Banner Systems into a single, shared application that will result in a more efficient, consistent, and feature-rich student information system. The new consolidated platform with a common course catalog will enable students to move seamlessly between SU campuses.  Cross-admissions and registration processes like the SU Connect program will be simplified. The new interface between Banner and a newly consolidated Moodle LMS will provide seamless integration between the systems.  Common business processes will enable campuses to collaborate and develop new ideas that will propel the University forward.

The consolidation of the Banner system for all campuses is a significant step toward the realization of a long-term benefit for the SU System, along with significant savings due to economies of scale.  The much-anticipated SUS Consolidated Banner platform is coming soon.

Five Campuses. One System. One SU Login.

A new Southern Universal login, "mySUlogin" will make it easier to access a variety of platforms on all five campuses of the Southern University System. An entity (person or non-person) may have multiple email addresses within the Banner system. However, the appropriate “Official University” email address will be used for all SUS official correspondence. Email addresses should be accurate and reflect the most recent email address received.

Moving forward your new SUlogin, “FirstName.LastName@sus.edu” will be created for all students/faculty/staff. A notification email will be sent once the email accounts have been created and confirmed. This new login will be used for credentials to access BANNER, SUS email account, MOODLE, mySU mobile app, and the Wireless Network. All students/faculty/staff will continue to have access to their current campus email (@subr.edu, @susla.edu, @suno.edu, @sulc.edu) and will receive their local campus communications via this email.

Inside BANNER SSB Students, Faculty, and Staff may create/update any of the accounts listed below if needed:

  • EMR Emergency Contact Email Address
  • PARN Parents Email Address
  • PERS Personal Email Address
  • FAEM Financial Aid Email Account

All other email accounts will require official documentation to be modified or updated in the Banner System:

  • UNIV Official University Email Address
  • CAMP Campus Emal Address

Student Identification "U" Number

Before the consolidation of the Banner system, each institution maintained a unique Identification Number for students, employees, and vendors. For example:

  • SUBR / SULC: S12345678
  • SUSLA: 900987654
  • SUNO: N12345678

A new system-generated number will be used as the primary identification number within the Southern University Consolidated Banner System. This new 9 digit numbers will begin with the letter "U" followed by 8 numerical digits. For example, a system-generated number would appear as U12345678. When transferring between SUS institutions no new entry for a person will be created regardless of location or module.

The old Identification Number has been retained as an "alternate ID". Lookup your new SUS ID and Login HERE.

Term Code Structure

Term codes have been restructured to allow each Southern University Campus to control registration and other important business processes. To achieve this, the code was revised to use numbers in the first position of the codes, identifying the campus within the SU System. 

Campus Identifier

  • 2 - SUBR
  • 3 - LAW CENTER
  • 4 - SUNO
  • 5 - SUSLA

The new structure moves the academic year into the 2nd through 5th position.

The Calendar Year Identifier

  • 2019
  • 2020
  • 2021

The semester within the academic year is in the last position. Values range from 0-9 for semesters. When additional Summer Terms are scheduled, 6 or 7 will be used:

Semester Identifier

  • 1 - Fall
  • 2 - Placeholder for an intersession short semester
  • 3 - Spring
  • 4 - Placeholder for a late Spring or early Summer semester
  • 5 - Summer
Examples of the changes for Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Summer 2020

Catalog - Course Subject Codes & Number Changes

 

Subject Codes

All Southern University courses that were identified as equivalent, transferable courses within the Louisiana Common Course Catalog (to be referred to as “LCCC” in the remainder of this document) had the Subject codes revised to make it clear that the course is part of the Common Catalog matrix and is transferable within the Louisiana system. 

To make these common courses more obvious to students, advisors, and faculty, the subject code was modified by adding an “S” as the first character (prepended).  The remainder of the code was modified to coincide with the LCCC abbreviations.

For Example:

Course subjects not mapped to the LCCC Courses subjects mapped to the LCCC
BIOL – Biology SBIO – Biology – SUS
ENGL – English  SENL – English – SUS

 

 This pattern was followed for all courses that were mapped to LCCC courses for transferability within the State.  In general, courses at the advanced level, 300 or higher, did not have the subject code changed as described above.  However, if a 300 or higher-level course had an LCCC equivalent, the course number was changed to align with the LCCC.   Therefore you will see course number adjustments even at the 300 level or higher, but the subject code was not always revised as described above.

All other subjects that are not translated in the Louisiana Common Course Catalog have been converted using the previous subject code rubrics and had the numbers appended with the campus identifying character, as described in the next section. During course conversion, the course titles for each campus were retained.

These are the subjects that had course subjects and numbers re-aligned with the Lousiana Course Catalog: 

Accounting Economics Political Science
Arts - Fine Arts English Psychology
Biology History Sociology
Chemistry Math Spanish
Criminal Justice Physical Science Speech-Theater-Communication

 

Course Numbering

The second significant identifier of a course in the catalog is the number.  In the consolidated system, all course numbers have been appended with a character that describes the campus/institution within the Southern University System*.

The character identifiers are:

  • B – Baton Rouge
  • N – New Orleans
  • S Shreveport

*The Law Center courses did not require this modification since there are no LAW courses in any other locations. 

In the case where a course number had previously contained an ending letter, such as for LAB, the L was retained and the campus identifier was added.  In this example BIOL 105 has a new number to align with the LCCC, so the subject code and number have changed:

 BIOL 105L is now listed as SBIO 104LN

  • "S" - Prepended noting this is a Common course for the Southern University
  • "L" - Denotes this is a LAB section
  • "N" - Denotes it is a New Orleans course

Renumbering is based upon the course numbering system for the Louisiana Common Course Catalog

For example:

Common Course Number - LCCC New Southern University Common Numbers
CBIO 1011 SBIO 101B, SBIO 101S, SBIO 101N
CENL 2403 SENL 240B, SENL 240S, SENL 240N

"Single Sign-On" Ethos Identity Page

Below is the new look for the SUS Ellucian Ethos Identity page. This page will be displayed when accessing any Banner 9 and Banner related products that require Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication. The SSO creates a "Token" that will expire within 30 minutes of inactivity. For a new token, users will need to log in using their credentials again. Users cannot create shortcuts or bookmarks to access any of the Banner 9 and Banner related products after logging in, because a unique "Token" is created with every access.
