Banner Academic Sessions

Screen Description

The Banner Academic Sessions page allows defining Banner-related data for each academic session.

Once a session is set to store data for Banner, whenever a change is made to a course, CRNs are automatically generated for all classes within the course.  If the courses are structured, the appropriate link identifiers are automatically created to tie the Banner sections together.  If a course is cross-listed, multiple banner sections are created for the course and they are automatically tied together with appropriate cross-list identifiers.


For each UniTime session you wish to store data for Banner you will need to add a corresponding Banner session.

  • Academic Session
    • The UniTime academic session
  • Banner Term Code
    • The code used in Banner to identify a session, i.e. 201220
  • Banner Campus
    • The string used to identify the campus in Banner.  
  • Store Data for Banner
    • Whenever a change is made to a course in UniTime, store the appropriate data that is needed for Banner.
  • Send Data to Banner
    • Whenever a change is made to a course in UniTime, send the appropriate data to Banner.  This is often turned off during session setup until Banner is ready to receive data for a session.
