This update will provide you with improvements to the overall system and align the university to regulatory requirements. However, your key data, general functions, and the business rules you follow to perform these functions in Banner Administration Pages will remain unchanged. 

How does this impact you? 

Banner Administration Pages and Aurora Self-Service will be temporarily unavailable from January 6, 2023, at 4 p.m. to January 9, 2023, at 8 a.m. as the systems upgrade.
