What is Self-Service Banner (SSB)?
With WebAdvisor going away, Self-Service Banner (SSB) is Northern’s new student information and registration system. With SSB, you can view your schedule, grades, transcript, student account and financial aid information, and pay tuition (tuition payment available in May 2019).
How do I access SSB?
- SNAP -- Student tab -- Student Registration
- The myNSU login page. Click LOG IN TO SELF-SERVICE BANNER, enter your Wolves email and password, then select the STUDENT tab and click Student Registration.
Who can use SSB to register?
All students can use SSB to search course offerings and plan schedules, but not every student can use the system to register themselves for classes.
If you are eligible for SSB and know which classes you want, you can log in to register any time after the time specified on your Time Ticket. Students who are in a restricted category or have holds will be stopped from registering online.
How do I know if I am in a restricted category?
To check for holds, log in to SSB then Registration Menu -- Prepare for Registration.
High school dual credit students are restricted and will be enrolled by the HSDC coordinator at NSU.
What do I do if I have holds?
Advisor holds restrict a student and are assigned to freshmen, sophomores and some programs at the request of the advisor/department. Students with an advisor hold should see their advisor.
Other reasons for holds may be related to accounts receivable or incomplete admissions files. If you have a hold, contact your advisor or the Registrar’s Office for assistance. Once the hold has ended, you will be able to register.
Once holds are resolved, how do I register for classes?
Spring 2019 semester, current students will still use the WebAdvisor program evaluation to determine which classes are needed. Make an appointment with your advisor - even if you don’t have an advisor hold - for help planning your classes.
When can I register?
SSB registration opens March 18, 2019. Your own registration times may vary based on your time ticket; see Registration -- Prepare for Registration.
What is a Time Ticket?
Current students are assigned a Time Ticket in SSB. It specifies the earliest date and time you can register, based on credits earned. Find your Time Ticket at SSB -- Registration Menu -- Prepare for Registration.
How do I browse classes?
Select the Term -- Continue. Select Northern State University in the University field.
Select a location in the Location/Online field: Online, NSU Main Campus, or both. Huron students may select Huron as a location.
Click Search and all NSU classes for the semester will appear. To refine results, enter Subjects, Course Numbers, or Open Sections Only, or use Advanced Search.
How do I build my schedule?
Build your schedule by selecting classes that meet at your preferred days and times. Note the CRN number for your selected class to enter later in the Register for Classes option. In this option, entering the CRN numbers will add the classes to your summary, which you can then submit to register.
I wrote down a CRN - how do I register for that course?
Go to Registration -- Register for Classes. Once you select a term, click on the Enter CRNs tab.
How do I use the Plan Ahead feature?
Select the term, then search for sections using the fields provided.
After the initial list of classes appears, click on View Sections. As you cannot yet choose your university or location, you must check either the university field for Northern classes or the section number. All NSU sections begin with an N. NSU online courses begin with NT.
As you choose sections, they appear on the grids as in Register for Classes.
When done, save as a Plan. Each student can save two plans. Later, when your Time Ticket becomes current, go to Register -- Plans and select your plan. The courses will appear, and you may remove or register for those classes.
How do I register for classes?
If your Time Ticket is in the future, please use Plan Ahead (above).
If your Time Ticket is current, go to Registration -- Register for Classes. Select Term -- Continue. Select Northern State University in the University field.
Select the appropriate Location in the Location/Online field: Online, NSU Main Campus, or both. Huron students may select Huron as a location. Click Search and all NSU classes for the semester will appear. You can enter Subjects, Course Numbers, or Open Sections Only to refine results, or select Advanced Search.
From the class list, click Add for each you wish to take. They will appear on the Class Schedule grid so you can see times and avoid conflicts, and on the summary area as Pending. Remove or add classes to your schedule until you are satisfied.
Click Submit and you will be registered in the classes.
What if I need to change my schedule?
To change to different sections of the same course, go to Register for Classes. If you need to make more significant changes, see your advisor.
Where is Program Eval in SSB?
SSB’s program eval is called Degree Works. Degree Works will be available at the end of August 2019. Before then, use WebAdvisor Program Eval to determine which classes you need.
What if I get an error message?
Contact your advisor or the Registrar’s Office, or OCE for online students. This term, SSB may not yet be fully set up to check prerequisites, so be sure to avoid classes for which you have not completed prerequisites.
Where can I get help?
Get hands-on assistance from NSU tech fellows at TC 148; call the Tech Support Desk at 626-2283; email email@example.com; or seek help from advisors and staff in departmental offices.
What if a class is full?
Some classes will have waitlist spots available.
What can an advisor do for me?
Advisors can help you with class selection and program evals, remove an advisor hold, and help you choose classes. However, you must enroll yourself.
Why didn’t my changes save?
Did you press submit? If you did, are there holds on your account? Check at Registration -- Prepare for Registration.
Why did I get logged out?
For privacy, you will be logged out after 5 minutes of inactivity.
Can I still use WebAdvisor?
Students can use WebAdvisor during the spring 2019 semester to:
- See program evaluations
- See grades for past terms
- See grades for spring 2019
- See past schedules
- See current schedules for spring 2019
