Frequently Asked Questions


How do I get a Banner Account?

Banner access accounts are controlled by the administrative offices within the functional areas of Student, Student Financial Services, Human Resources, Finance, Business Operations, and other auxiliary departments. Department leaders within each of these functional areas request Banner access for their staff and faculty through the appropriate Data Custodian, who submits the actual access request to ITS.

How do I get a GULFLINE Account?

Students get their Banner Self-Service account automatically after being accepted to the University and registering for course. Questions regarding your GULFLINE account should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.

Faculty and Staff get their GULFLINE account during their initial hire and sign-on process with Human Resources and should contact HR with questions regarding their account.

How do I get a report of data from Banner?

Most reports can be developed in the Cognos reporting tool and may already exist. Requests should be made to the appropriate Data Custodian for the functional area(s) that administrate the data being requested. Data Custodians will also submit requests to ITS for the appropriate accounts and permissions for Faculty and Staff to access these reports.
