Banner Finance - Training Format

Welcome to the Business Services Training Page. The purpose of developing and hosting All Campus Training is to provide faculty and staff with information on SOU Financial Information Systems (FIS Banner).  The training of core topics comes through the Service Center for campus Divisions/Departments and includes sessions on: General Accounting, General Budget, FIS Banner overview, Fiscal Year End Responsibilities, and overall All Campus Procedures.  Monthly ALL Campus Training is implemented through the Service Center.  Please check that website for current topics to be covered.  The topics cover a range of information for campus to use while conducting day-to-day business operations for the university.  RSVP:   Please check the Service Center All Campus Training Calendar for Open Sessions which are typically scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday of most months during the academic year.  Reservations are preferred to help with planning, but walk-ins are welcome.
