Banner Self-Service 9: Advisor Overview

Banner Self-Service 9 offers updated features, including a responsive, mobile-friendly interface, along with a new navigation model. While Banner Self-Service 9 has a new look and feel, the features and functionality remain essentially the same.


The login process has not changed. To access Banner Self-Service 9 go to Banner Self-Service, log in with your Davidson credentials, and authenticate. Now is a good time to update any previously saved Banner Self-Service bookmarks in your web browsers.

Once you're logged in, the landing page will display personal information you can click to view biographical and demographic details. (Note: employees must update this information in Oracle).
