Student Connect Resources

Guidelines for Faculty Staff Access

This site is intended as a resource to assist Academic and School Administrative staff:

  • access data to provide advice to students on course matters, and
  • utilise the features of Student Connect to complete administrative functions in an effective way.

The data on Student Connect and Banner is identical. Therefore staff who are trained users of Banner may still access information using the previous methods.
