Ellucian, the vendor for Banner, offers in-depth training videos and other resources for all higher education institutions that use Banner. There is a two-step registration process to access Ellucian's training resources:

1. Sign up at using the format of your Wayne State email. Follow the prompts and verify your account via the confirmation email. It may take up to five business days to complete this first step of the registration process.

3. Once you are inside the app, click on Helpful Links > Using this Site for an overview of finding and launching training courses.
