Understanding HOMER (Our Student Information System)

Our Student Information System is named “Homer” after the classic Greek poet. The software behind the scences is actually Ellucian's Banner and is used by colleges and universities of higher education around the world. There are two ways to access information in Homer: HomerConnect is the web self-service portion, and HomerAdmin is the full blown Banner software system. 

Faculty will use HomerConnect to:

  • view class lists
  • view teaching schedule
  • submit grades
  • view advisee lists
  • perform degree evaluations with students

Staff members will use HomerAdmin to:

  • process registration overrides
  • view class lists
  • review student information
  • manage sport rosters
  • view student or faculty schedules

Homer houses all student information. It begins at undergraduate or graduate recruitment and admission and continues through student registration, financial aid and billing, housing, honors, judicial issues, program requirements by catalog year and graduation information and more.
