Banner 8 Upgrade and Computer Based Training


Good morning,
Just a reminder that Banner will go down at close of business today, and will be for at least the next week, in order to perform the upgrade to version 8.

In preparation for the Banner upgrade, Darton College participated in the Spring 2011 Banner Boot Camp and those who attended were able to learn some valuable information. If you missed it, or want to access the archived sessions, they can be found in the following location:

  2. Select PARTICIPANT LOGIN.
  3. When prompted, enter the following information:

Since so many have expressed an interest in knowing more about Banner, we have found a convenient way for users to get additional training that is applicable and accessible from anywhere, at any time. The Digital Campus Academy (https://udca.sungardhe.com/cp/home/displaylogin) is hosted by SunGard Higher Education's Training Services and provides comprehensive training for end users in a secure online environment.

An account has been created for you in UDC and your credentials should follow this format: User Name:  email.address@darton.edu and Password: firstname1, substituting in your personal info as should be obvious. Multi-part first names as provided were retained whenever possible, hence affected individuals would use maryann1 rather than mary1, et al.

If you are having difficulty logging in to the Academy, please contact me directly and I will assist you.

Thank you,

Alex Daughety
