Banner in support of the Student Record

Banner is being used to manage the definitive record of the curriculum in the form of Academic Model and Curriculum Reviewed programmes and modules for 2019/20. The timeline for Banner to support the management of the student record is January 2020. 

Curriculum management:

  • Banner will be used to manage the definitive record of the curriculum within Registry, using the data collected through the Academic Model project and Curriculum Review. Results returned in the Summer and Autumn term for 2018/19 study will be entered into OSS in the academic model format.
  • Student-facing systems, such as DSS, Celcat, Blackboard and Leganto are being set-up to reflect the definitive module titles and codes for 2019/20 study.

Student record:

  • Staff will continue to access student data using OSS and Imperial College Analytics (ICA) for dashboard reporting until December 2019 when our data migration will take place from OSS to Banner. Data will be migrated for all enrolled, waiting to enrol and withdrawn students from 1 August 2019. The Banner Student Enquiry form providing staff access to student data will be available from January 2020. ICA reports will be available for OSS student data prior to 1 August 2019, and Banner student data post 1 August 2019.
  • Students will move from using Student eService to My Imperial from Janaury 2020.
