Banner Finance

Tags PSU

The University System of New Hampshire, of which Plymouth State University is a member, uses the Banner Finance module which is stored and administered from a database that is located at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. This module is used to store accounting, purchasing, budgeting data into a Banner database.


In order to access the database using the Internet Native Banner (INB) interface an employee of PSU must successfully complete the Banner training that is offered by the PSU Finance Services Office in order to receive a username and password. For more information contact the Finance Services Office at x52362.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

Access to the Banner HR/Finance requires the use of our Virtual Private Network (VPN) in order to securely transmit and receive financial data. See Connecting to the VPN for additional instructions.

Unable to login to Banner Finance more than once

It appears that any time a user clicks the USNHGateway link to log into Banner Finance for a second time within the same myPlymouth portal session the FRM-40010:Cannot open from GUAINIT.fmx is displayed. The workaround is to log out of the myPlymouth portal AND close the Internet Explorer window prior to logging into Banner Finance for the second time. All connections are released. Then, start over by opening a new Internet Explorer window, logging into the myPlymouth portal and clicking on the Banner Finance link.
