REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR SUMMER CLASSES… Here's what you need to know:

DMACC has begun our strategic migration from the current Web Info System to Banner Self-Service 9 within myDMACC. As mentioned in previous communications, users will be provided the opportunity to access the new Banner Self-Service 9, live in production, but will also be able to use the old system, in parallel, in order to adjust to the new functions and features.

Click your DMACC role using the top menu (Student, Faculty, Staff).

On the left Menu:

  • Users will continue to see "Web Info System", also known as Web Info Sys or WIS.
  • A + sign on the right of the "Web Info System", button indicates that users can expand the section to see the WIS Navigation Menu.
  • A new image will appear "Banner Self Service". This is the new Banner Self Service 9, live in production.


Users may continue to access features in the WIS section or use the new Banner 9 Self Service, live in production, as features migrate to the Banner Self Service tab. Any changes made within the WIS and Banner Self-Service are REAL and will replace any old data that has been saved previously. When the project is completed (expected September, 2022), all features will be migrated to the Banner Self-Service 9 platform.

Faculty and Staff will have the opportunity to complete training on Banner Self Service via SafeColleges beginning September 21st, while Students Banner Self Service training will be available early in October.
