Systems Downtime this Saturday and Sunday, September 26-27, 2020

Hello Campus Community Members,

The Joint Banner Project (JBP) team is planning another Banner system outage this coming weekend, September 26th and 27th.  This outage will support the next round of data migration from Colorado State University Pueblo’s system into Banner.  Affected systems within the Colorado State University student information system environment are listed below.  The majority of systems will be offline from 8am Saturday the 26th until mid-afternoon the same day.  The ODS downtime will push into Sunday the 27th.

The JBP is a multi-year effort to upgrade and integrate student administrative computer operations between CSU-Fort Collins and CSU-Pueblo.  The result will bring together a range of functions, from student information and registration to managing secure online identities for faculty, staff and students.  The timeline calls for CSU-Pueblo students to be able to register in March 2021 for classes in Banner for the Fall 2021 semester.

Affected CSU systems that will be offline include:

Banner Admin Pages and Self Service Banner (SSB) to include registration
