Banner Self-Service 9: Student Overview

Banner Self-Service 9 offers updated features, including a responsive, mobile-friendly interface, and 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 and login with your Davidson credentials and authenticate. Once logged in, the landing page will display personal information, which you can click to view. (Note: students must email the Registrar’s office to update information.)


What’s New

  • Action Items: Tasks you need to complete will be listed under action items. This will only be visible if you have action items assigned to you.
  • Add/Update Proxy Access: If you set up a parent/proxy in Banner Self-Service 8, authorizing access to all features (1098T and Financial Aid Overview), you don’t need to take further action.
