The Banner 7 Planning Workgroup has completed research on the major tasks involved in upgrading to Banner 7, which was released in December 2004. The Banner Oversight Committee has completed its review of the report, and plans to implement Banner 7 during Summer 2006, in advance of federal mandate requirements for financial aid. This significant upgrade includes a change to Web-based access that requires a screen size of 1024x768, which is not supported by many 15" monitors. As such, a communication campaign targeted at campus managers and Banner users is already underway, urging Banner users to verify whether their monitors support the required screen size. Development and testing is for the Banner 7 upgrade is scheduled to begin in late Fall 2005. For questions about Banner implementation, please contact Joyce Johnstone at email@example.com.
