Step 3: Registration

VSU undergraduate students will register for classes using the Banner Web Registration System. Banner Web is also used for paying fees, withdrawing from classes, signing off on financial aid documents, and other administrative actions. Follow the instructions below to login to Banner and complete your course registration.

For assistance with your Banner login or registration, please contact the VSU Helpdesk at 229-245-4357.

How do I log into Banner Registration?

To log into the Banner system you must have your VSU Student ID and password:

  • User ID: Your VSU Student ID Number
  • Banner Password for First Time Users: MMMDDYYYY, where:
    • MMM is replaced by the first three letters of your month of birth in uppercase
    • DD is replaced by the day of the month you were born
    • YYYY is replaced by your year of birth
    • ex. If you were born on January 16th, 1983, your password would be JAN161983

If you have logged into Banner Web previously, you were required to change your password and enter a security question.  If you cannot remember the password you selected, enter your User ID (VSU Student ID Number) and click First Time User or Forgot Password link on the login page. Be sure to try the birthday protocol first in case you've never logged in.
