Requesting Access to Banner (for Advisors)


Follow the steps below to submit your request to student information via the online Banner Access Request application. Please note that if you need access to other areas of Banner (ex: Accounts Receivable, Admissions) you will need to submit multiple access requests - one for each Banner module. The information below addresses access for the Student module.

If you experience technical issues with the online request application, please contact the IT Helpdesk ( or 405-744-HELP).


  • Login to the Banner Access Request application:
  • Click the blue Create Access Request button:
  • Select OSU Stillwater/Tulsa as the campus, then click Next:
  • Select STUDENT as the Banner module, then click Next:
  • Search for yourself or the person for whom you are requesting access (by name or email address, etc.), then click Next. 
  • Confirm the person on the following screen by clicking the radio button next to their name, and click Next.
  • Banner should automatically look up the department head. Confirm that the proper department head who will need to approve this request is the one listed, and click Continue.

If a department head has not been setup for your department, the following screen will show:


Statement regarding department head in Banner.


  • Select the Banner Security Group(s) desired by checking the boxes to the left of the Security Group description. For more information on the security groups, click on the security group description to see a list of all Banner objects/screens for which that group provides access. A summary of all open Student security groups is also provided in the table at the bottom of these instructions. After checking the boxes for the desired security groups, click Next.
  • Review the request details to confirm they are correct. You also have the option to indicate other information in the optional Comments section.
  • After the request has been submitted, the person for whom the request was made must login to the system and agree to the Banner access confidentiality statement (if this is their first Banner access request).
  • The Department Head will also receive an email prompting them to login to the system and approve the request. Department Heads can also login to the system and click the Pending Department Head Action link (under the Approver menu) to view and approve pending requests.
  • The data owners of the different security groups must review & approve the request.
  • Finally, the request must be processed by IT. When the new access has been setup, the requestor will receive an email from the IT Helpdesk indicating that the request has been completed.
