Lighthouse is the name of Gulf Coast State College's Enterprise Resource Planning system used by Human Resources, Financial Aid, Finance, and Student areas of the college. The software used for the system is Banner and is owned by Ellucian.
Self-Service banner, SSB, allows end users to view and enter select information through the Web. For students and adjuncts SSB is accessed by clicking the Lighthouse Login icon on the www.gulfcoast.edu homepage. A student registering for their courses on the Web is an example of using SSB.
Internet-Native Banner, INB, allows the functional users to create the rules and setups for how data is managed. Enrollment Services creating class sections for future registration is an example of how INB is used. INB is accessed through the links on the Lighthouse Team Site page.
