Banner and Report Access

HRIS would like to remind employees that all requests for Banner and Report Access must be done by completing this HR Access form.  To ensure that all requested access is granted, we ask that departmental organization numbers be used instead of names, when requesting Departmental Reports. We continue to understand that many employees are working from home and might be unable to sign the form, in these cases we ask that the request be emailed to us directly by the departmental requestor. These requests are typically processed within 24 hours of receipt.

If you have any questions or concerns about the form or the access type options, please email us at or call 487-2280.
