The College’s administrative student information system (Homer), interactive web-based module (HomerConnect), and myIthaca will be undergoing an upgrade in June. All three systems will be unavailable beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 10 through the morning of Monday, June 14 while the conversion to these upgraded systems takes place.
The Banner Implementation Team appreciates your understanding and cooperation during this period of time in which Homer, HomerConnect, and myIthaca are temporarily inaccessible. The dates chosen are those that will have minimal impact on most of the campus. This upgrade is necessary in order to modernize our student information system and ensure that we can continue to conduct business with the Homer system.

The workshop will run from 9:00 till 5:00 in Williams 302 and will be free. It is recommended that you look at the book before.
