St. Catherine University

St. Catherine University hosts Winter training for Banner Student & Banner Financial Aid users January 28, 29, & 30, 2015

Building on the success of last year's training for Human Resources and Payroll, we are expanding the training offering this winter to two modules - Banner Student & Banner Financial Aid. Training will done for the Banner 8.x release - a survey among steering team members indicating no immediate plans to implement XE. We will use a common "seed" database for training that is at current Banner 8.x release levels.

Pricing will be split among the schools participating. The steering team agreed to give the host school one free seat for each of the two training tracks. Here's how the pricing will work. The maximum price is set at $567 per seat - the break even amount for an enrollment of 15 paying seats. So each seat will start at a cost of $567 but could go down to $293 per seat if we are able to fill all 30 available seats for Student and the 30 available seats for Financial Aid. Cost does not include travel expenses or meals. Preference will be given to the first two participants for each member school, then to participants in date/time order of registration.

The cutoff for registration is Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014.
