Banner Information

The Banner Enterprise Information System at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is comprised of the following components: Banner Student, Banner Operational Data Store (ODS), and Argos Enterprise Reporting.

Banner Student

Supports a full range of functions necessary for student administration including: creation of catalogs; data collection for scheduling of classes, admissions, and registration; financial aid, accounts receivable; and academic history and degree audit reporting. The Banner Student System benefits many of our administrative offices including Admissions, Registrar, Bursar, and Financial Aid. Parking, Library, Health Services, Academic Advising, etc. also benefit by way of data feeds.

Banner Operational Data Store (ODS)

Provides operational reporting for the Banner Student and Banner HR systems. ODS simplifies reporting by taking a snapshot of the data from the Banner System and creating views that are organized by business functionality; i.e. Student, Bursar, Admissions, Financial Aid, and HR. The system is primarily accessed through the use of the Argos: Enterprise Reporting Tool.

Argos Enterprise Reporting

Provides functionality that enables UTHSC staff and faculty to develop and/or execute reports against the Banner data available in the Banner Operational Data Store (ODS). These reports may range from simple ad hoc queries to advanced dashboards with interactive charts.

We have inserted college-level options for all courses in Banner. This means that student transcripts now have the option of printing college-specific courses (with relevant GPAs) should the student have courses in multiple colleges. Official transcripts will, however, display all coursework completed at UTHSC with the aggregate, cumulative GPA in keeping with CASA-approved procedures.

In order to view the official transcript via Banner SSB, please do not select "All Levels" as this will show all options of each course making the view appear to present duplicates. In order to view the official transcript via Banner SSB, please select the generic level option (e.g. Professional Doctorate, Professional Masters, Graduate, etc.).
