Migration from PowerCampus to Banner

3rd January, 2019

PRESS STATEMENT

Please be advised that University of The Bahamas (UB) has activated a number of contingencies in order to increase the efficient processing of students who are completing the third phase of the advisement, registration and bill payment process for Spring 2019.

The deadline for the payment of tuition and fees has been extended to Monday, 7th January, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. Thereafter, the process of de-registration will commence. However, the University will extend its operations into the weekend in order to complete registration for students. The student services offices within the Portia M. Smith (PMS) building will be open on Saturday, 5th January and Sunday, 6th January, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The includes the cashiers, Ministry of Education, Financial Aid and Registrar’s offices. Classes commence for Spring 2019 on Monday, 7th January.

The following adjustments have also been made:-

Bill Payment

Effective immediately, students who are making full payments to cashiers should use the entrance to the east of the PMS building, rather than the main entrance at the north of the building.

However, students are urged to take advantage of online payment via the new Banner system. The A13 lab is still available for students needing to complete this transaction as well as to print transcripts. Students are reminded that their debit and credit cards may be limited to $1,000 per day and they will need to contact their banks to increase the amount. There is no need to come to campus if you are paying online.

Deferred Payment
Students will be processed at the Performing Arts Centre effective 12:00 p.m. (3rd January, 2019). Tickets have been disbursed to those who were already on lines at the PMS in order to preserve their processing order when servicing re-commences at noon at the PAC.

Effective immediately, the following are needed for the processing of deferred payments:
1. A current bill
2. The initial payment (one-third) and processing fee
3. A valid ID
4. Signature for the Deferred Payment Contract

The balance (two-thirds) of the deferred payment is due by the end of the Spring 2019 semester. The additional paperwork that was normally required for this process has been suspended.

Banner 9 was released Monday, June 11th at 1:00 p.m for general access with online registration go-live Monday, June 25th at 12:01a.m.

PowerCampus

PowerCampus and the accompanying Self-Service module has been operational since 2006. It has served the institution well as we transformed our operating model and system architecture from an AS/400 onto a Windows based platform. PowerCampus will eventually be totally phased out over the next few months as we transition to a more robust solution with improved capabilities and a modern interface.

While we transition from one system to the next, PowerCampus Self-Service will remain operational as we continue to service the needs of CELEARN in PowerCampus. The legacy system will continue supporting short courses, upgrading, enhancement and certificate based courses.

Banner 9

Banner 9 delivers a number of important enhancements, including a modern user interface, enhanced navigation and process management tools, and new functionality across the Student, Finance and HR systems. It will also give us greater flexibility as we’ll be able to run Banner on any modern browser.

Aas we move towards a more streamlined access model, your login to Banner Self-Service uses your assigned network credentials used for login to lab computers and your email. That means one less ID and password combination to manage.
