  • New User Course

    There are three ways an employee may gain access to Cognos and be invited to training:

    1. A new employee fills out security paperwork for Banner access to Finance and/or Student
    2. An existing employee does not currently have access to Banner data, but needs access.
    3. An existing employee has access already to Banner, but now needs access to Cognos Reports.

    To accommodate the first and second options, a user will be invited to training upon Information Management receiving the approval, which is part of the security flow that accompanies the authorization forms. If an employee needs Finance or Student Access, and has not yet filled out the appropriate forms, please click the link below.

    To accommodate the third option, submit a Cognos License Request.



  • Refresher Course

    Cognos training is available to consumers and authors throughout the year. Consumer training is held monthly from January through October. Author training is held quarterly. Those who have been through training previously are welcome to attend another session.

    Access to the training sessions can be found on the respective SharePoint sites. Please log-in with your username and password:
