Information Services supports the administrative data systems that help the University conduct its business. These applications are closely associated with the Data Warehouse models used by OSU and OUS.
Access to any of the OSU Administrative Systems requires that you:
Once we have reviewed and approved your Request for Access form (page 1 and 2) and we have your signed Confidentiality and Policies statement (page 3) on file, you will be notified by the Data Owners of any training required to access that system.
If you have any questions about the status of your access to any OSU Administrative Systems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
DEVL and DEV2 are used at OSU as the development instances that contain different versions of Banner for training, testing, and modifying Banner to meet OSU's specific needs:
The development instances contain some data that has been copied from PROD, but the names and IDs have been scrambled to protect people's privacy. Other data has been specifically created or has been manipulated so that it can be used for testing.
Please do not change any data related to people whose last names in the test data are followed by a "-" and an upper case set of letters. These upper case letters are there to indicate that this data is being used by a specific area of Banner for testing. You are welcome to create test data for your own use. Please be aware of confidentiality issues and do not include any data that could identify a specific real person.
Many validation tables are copied from PROD periodically so that the development instance contains the same values as are used in production.
Access to the development instance is available through individual user IDs and passwords that are set up specifically for DEVx access. To receive a DEVx ID and password, fill out a Banner & Data Warehouse Request for Access form, add the word "DEVx", to this form. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
ACT Service Request System Login: System Requests
To request access to OSU Administrative Data Systems, including Banner, Data Warehouse and Nolij, please download and complete the Request for Access form. We update this form when new software is implemented, so please make sure you have the latest version. Please note that your form will be returned, unprocessed, unless:
Email requests for new users OR for users changing to a new department must include a completed and signed Request for Access form in PDF format.

Please remember to enroll for any of the required Banner, Data Warehouse, and FERPA classes.
Access to any OSU Data System is approved and granted by the appropriate OSU record custodian of the system, or their designated representative, as per Section 103 of the OSU Information Sercurity Manual. The following requirements have been set by the OSU records custodians documented in the Acceptable Use of University Information Policy.
Enterprise Computing Services (ECS) will enable access based on the signed request form for the OSU Banner Information Systems, including Banner, Data Warehouse and Nolij. Access to these systems will be terminated based on (a) separation from the university, (b) change in job duties recorded in the HRIS system, or (c) instructions from Department/Unit heads. ECS will affirm access with Department/Unit heads as still appropriate to meet business needs every 6 months.
Access to the CORE reporting system is automatically granted and terminated based on job function as documented in the HRIS system. The Business Intellegence Center may modify access based on a manual review of job duties.
