Oklahoma State U Adds ERP To Improve Student Experience

Oklahoma State University is upgrading its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in an effort to improve student experience and reduce operational support.

The university is adopting Ellucian's Banner to allow students "to personally manage their academic careers while remaining in close contact with their institutional advisors," according to a news release. "Banner will also present Oklahoma State University faculty with an opportunity to improve data collection, strengthening the institution's ability to make critical decisions."

Students will use Banner Student to apply for admission, enroll in classes and access financial aid information. The school will also implement Ellucian Mobile, Ellucian Portal, Banner Financial Aid and Banner Data Defense.

"For more than 120 years, Oklahoma State University has been guided by a specific principle – to facilitate student experiences that promote future achievement," said Oklahoma State University CIO Darlene Hightower, in a prepared statement. "We want to engage with students on a meaningful level — both academically and socially — through technology that mirrors their communications in everyday life. Partnering with Ellucian will help drive those experiences and connect us with our students more effectively."
