IWU Banner 9 Self-Service User Guide

  • Students and Faculty can access Banner Self-Service through MyIWU by clicking on "Banner Self-Service" in the secondary navigation bar (dark green). BSS is primarily used for class related matters such as looking up grades, class registration,course schedule, etc.).
  • Tuition payments can be made via credit card or electronic check (ACH) payments using our online secure payment portal, powered by CASHNet. Access to this portal is available through your  Banner Self Service account . The student must grant access to other individuals by providing them with their own login and password. Once this is done, the authorized user can then access the  CASHNet Payment Gateway here  using credentials your student set up for you.
