Name changes are not processed for inactive students or previous employees except under special circumstances.   

General Person

A General Person exists on the BANNER system as either a person (student, financial aid applicant, or employee) or non-person (vendor, business, or agency).  All persons acting as vendors should be given a vendor code even if they were previously entered as a person.  A vender code is the letter V, followed by five numeric digits. 

Specific offices will be charged with entering, maintaining, updating, and correcting those general persons within their jurisdiction (this information can be viewed on GUASYST).

The Office of Admissions & Records is responsible for all students (current - Records; applicants/ new / returning -Admissions ). 

The Business Office is responsible for the entry of all vendors. 

The Human Resources Office is responsible for the entry of all applicants.

The Payroll Office is responsible for the entry of all employees.

The Financial Aid Office is responsible for the entry of all financial aid applicants who are not already on the system 

Address, name changes and/or ID changes will only be made in the office responsible for that general person type. (Financial Aid will not process any changes. Address and/or  name changes for financial aid applicants who are not students will be processed by the Admissions Office upon the completion of an application for admission.) Documentation pertaining to each type of change will be kept on file in the office responsible for processing.
