Banner Access Request

SUPERVISORS, need Banner access for your employee? Here’s how to request it--

The Supervisor will:

  1. Speak with the employee to define the job responsibilities and determine which Banner screens the employee needs access to. 
  2. Speak with the Banner Security Officer (BSO) for the area of Banner that the employee needs access to…and then request the appropriate Banner access for the employee by using the instructions below.

Instructions for the order to perform the actual request:

  1. Visit Banner Security Request (login with your normal TSU login/password).
    NOTE: If you see the following screen instead of the Banner Request page, you need to reboot your PC:
  2. Click the ellipsis (3 dots) button.
  3. Enter the employee’s last name and first name…and click the SEARCH button.
  4. In the search results, click the row that has employee’s name on it….and click the SELECT button.
  5. Click the “Request Access” button.
  6. Next, depending on what you want to do:
      If you want the employee's access to be identical to another employee, simply enter the username of the employee you're copying  into the “Copy user…” field. Then click "Duplicate User".
      Notice on the right-hand side are all of the Banner Security Groups. Click the plus-sign to open the group that the employee needs access to….and then click the box(es) for each group that the employee needs access to. NOTICE that in “GENERAL DATA STEWARD”, some boxes will already be checked by default. This is normal. Leave those checked.
  7. On the left-hand side, click "Submit Security Request".
  8. NOTE: the request has now been submitted into the Workflow system and each BSO will receive a notification so that they may approve/reject the access that is being requested. BSO: How to approve/reject>>
  9. You will receive notification when the request has been completely processed by every BSO and access granted by the IT staff.
  10. Did you catch that? EVERY BSO INVOLVED IN THE BANNER AREAS THAT YOUR REQUEST CONTAINS MUST PROCESS YOUR REQUEST. If you find that your request has not been granted yet, it's because one of the BSOs listed further below has not processed it in their Workflow account.

NOTE: The video further below demonstrates all these steps.



Does the employee need access to the Faculty/Advisor information in Banner? If so, in addition to completing the Banner Request, also email the Records office asking that the employee have access to Faculty/Advisor information in Banner.

Remove Banner Access

To remove certain Banner access of an employee, supervisors should follow these instructions:

  1. Visit  Banner Access Requests/Removals 
  2. Click the ellipsis to search for the person
  3. Highlight the row of the person & click "Select" at bottom
  4. Click "Request Access" to see what modules they have access to currently
  5. Expand the sections using the plus-sign (to see the person's access in each area)
  6. Unclick the modules that you don't want them to have access to any longer.
  7. On the left pane, click "Submit Security Request"
