Welcome to myPurdue News
This is the first issue of myPurdue News, the e-newsletter that is replacing ESAnews. During OnePurdue’s Enrollment and Student Affairs (ESA) implementation, ESAnews brought you important updates about the project. Now that the remaining Banner software modules are being released, the team is transitioning into a post-go-live, support phase, which will emphasize improving the new student systems and assisting the many thousands at Purdue who use them.
This newsletter will continue to deliver the latest news and information about the systems, though focus more on what most of you use on a day-to-day basis: the myPurdue portal and its functions.
Whether it’s a faculty member downloading class schedules, a student checking his or her financial aid status, or an academic advisor (or other staff member) assisting a student, myPurdue News will help you get the most out of Banner and its features.

New advising tool requires special Banner role, training
