The UWI, Mona Campus_Annual Report 2021-2022

Upgrade to Banner 9 In keeping with the Campus’ student-centred philosophy, the Campus continued to search for new and more efficient ways to engage and provide services to students. In that regard, the Office of the Campus Registrar transitioned from Banner version 8 to version 9 for student registration. Version 9 is far simpler to navigate and more user-friendly. In order to assist our students in using this facility, videos were posted to The UWI website to guide them through the process. Automated Graduate Processes The following graduate processes were automated through the efforts of the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (OGSR):
