Pennant is Penn’s suite of next-generation student information systems. The Pennant suite includes several components in the areas of Accounts, Financial Aid, and Records.
The launch of the Pennant suite of applications provides student with an upgraded user interface and enhanced search capabilities. Faculty and advisors will gain increased collaboration tools, improved visibility and reporting tools, and a more intuitive system for degree auditing. The project will move all three areas of student services away from green screens to a more modern interface and improve workflows which will reduce the number of manual steps needed to complete processes.
The University debuted Pennant Accounts in October 2015. The first releases of Pennant Aid and Records is scheduled for Fall 2021. Release 1 for Pennant Records will include section maintenance in CLSS and modification to Curriculum Manager (CM). Pennant Aid will focus on tracking, awards, needs analysis, endowed funding, and packaging for Fall 2022 applicants.
In Spring 2022 the University will deploy Release 2 which will enhance the student, faculty, and advisor experience for both Aid and Records.
