As the University of Hartford prepares to migrate to version 4.0
of the BANNER Administrative Information System (tenatively scheduled for the
fall of '99), it is necessary for our user community to migrate to a
client/server version of BANNER. The client/server version is referred to as
GUI or graphical user interface. BANNER in the GUI environment will support
the use of a mouse for items such as pull-down menus, buttons, scroll bars,
checkboxes and radio groups.
When BANNER 4.0 is implemented, it will mark the end of character
mode access to BANNER. Character mode access is defined as accessing BANNER
via a PC or Mac using terminal emulation or via a VT terminal. To assist in
the migration to BANNER GUI, ITS is asking all individuals who currently
meet the Minimum PC Configuration
Application Usage Requirements to fill out and submit the
BANNER GUI Installation Request
GUI installations will only be provided to those individuals whose BANNER
needs can not be met via the BANNER Web for Student, Faculty and/or Finance
applications. ITS reserves the right to decline any request that does not
meet usage or configuration requirements.
Provided that you meet the requirements of the above two sections, fill out
and submit the following form. Upon receiving your information, an ITS staff
member will contact you to make arrangements to install BANNER GUI on your
* Username and Network Password refer to those entered at the "Network
