Banner, along with various related systems, may be unavailable on Sundays throughout the transition to Banner 9.
As W&M transitions to Banner 9, it is necessary for W&M IT to have a regular weekly window reserved for Banner maintenance. We may or may not need to make Banner unavailable during the maintenance windows, but we are reserving the time to do so, just in case.
The Banner maintenance window is every Sunday beginning at 8:00am and generally lasting until 12:00pm (noon). Banner and several Banner-related systems may either be unavailable or partially impacted during the windows. Please plan accordingly.
In consultation with the campus community, we have identified dates where Banner maintenance may be a hindrance to university business. So IT will not perform Banner maintenance on the following Sundays:
- August 26
- September 2
Impacted systems include:
Banner Self-Service will be unavailable.
Banner Admin PROD
Banner Admin PROD will be unavailable.
ODSP/Discoverer (Banner Reports)
Reporting from Banner will also be unavailable.

Reporting from Banner via Argos will also be unavailable.
