ACIS & Banner

ACIS and Banner are student information systems. ACIS is an acronym for Albion College Information System. All Albion College employees use this site to access self-service resources (time clock, pay stubs, etc.). Faculty use this site to post grades, while students use it for course registration and checking grades. The site also allows students to view financial aid and account information.

Log in to ACIS

In ACIS users can look up and view pertinent student grades, classes, and contact information. Information usually cannot be modified in ACIS. Some faculty and staff may have access to edit and modify this data, which is done through the Banner platform. Banner is administrative software for Student, Financial Aid, Finance, Human Resources, and Development data. New faculty members receive their Banner and ACIS login credentials from the Registrar at their orientation meeting. Staff receives them by request from their supervisor.
