What Graduate Students Need to Know about the Banner Registration
- Student level is considered graduate for
all graduate students.
- Student class for all graduate
students is indicated as graduate. (For undergraduate students,
class is defined as freshman, sophomore, junior
and senior. See the undergraduate
information for further details.)
- Student major: View the major
description under the “Registration Status” link. Restrictions
by major or level can be viewed through the schedule by clicking the
“View Catalog Entry” and then going to the second page of
the catalog information.
- Time ticketing is the day
registration begins for graduate students and can also be viewed on
the “Registration Status” link.
- Corequisites: Banner requires
registration for corequisites at the same time. Choose all required
corequisites before registering to make the process easier. Typically
this would be lecture/lab or lecture/clinical sections, but other corequisites
exist as well and are clearly labeled in the schedule.
- CRN (formerly key#) stands
for “Course Reference Number.” It remains five digits.
- Course numbers have changed
and reflect not only department but subject within department. An example
of a converted number:
Legacy Course Number
Banner Course Number
The Course Number Conversionator
provides course conversion information for your reference.
- Real-time remaining seats
are displayed on the course schedule. Some seats may be reserved for
curricula needs, and you might see a message reflecting this where you
don’t meet the major or reserved-seat criteria for that section.
- Grading mode is noted on your
schedule. The term “graduate” refers to the current letter
grade scale and is applicable for most of your courses.
There will be some courses that only are graded as pass/fail, and that
grading mode will be noted.
