You can search the entire current catalog by selecting all subjects or you can search for specific courses by titles, CRN numbers, credits, instructors, attributes*, times and days. *an attribute is a descriptive term used to classify or in some cases restrict courses (for example: Moral Inquiry, Honors Scholars).
  25. 25. Look Up Classes- Class View This is an example of how a course listing will look in Banner. It lists the CRN number, title, course number and section, term, level, attribute, instructor(s), type of instruction, credits, time(s) and day(s). Some items are hyperlinked.
  26. 26. Look Up Classes- Detailed Class Information You can access this page by clicking on the course title. Here you will find information on waitlists as well as prerequisites and requirements for courses. Each prerequisite is also hyperlinked to a course description.
  27. 27. Look Up Classes- Catalog Entry You can access this page by clicking on Catalog Entry link in Detailed Class Information. One important detail of this page is the attribute. In this example, a student who is a Neuroscience major will receive major credit for this course.

Here you will find a list of current advisees with their ID numbers and several links. The Student Info link will take you to the General Student Info page. The Transcript link will take you to their transcript. The links for Holds, Test Scores and Degree Evaluation will likely be disabled for the time being.
  29. 29. Course Registration Worksheet This is the form the students will fill out prior to signing up for courses. It will help them make sure all the courses they need will fit into their schedule. It also provides space for alternate courses.
  30. 30. Course Approval Form This is the form students will use to get courses approved if an attribute blocks them from adding the course themselves . For example, if a senior needs a course which is designated as a junior course, they would get this form signed and return the form to the Registrar’s office for approval.
