Pennant Accounts

Pennant Accounts, released in October 2015, is the Student Billing and Accounts Receivable system. It comprises a collection of tools, including a Penn-configured installation of Banner Accounts Receivable from Ellucian, used by schools, centers, and central administrative staff to manage all aspects of a student’s billing account.

Pennant Accounts includes tools to manage the posting of charges and payments from multiple sources and the creation of consolidated statements of account, as well as accounting, reporting, and customer service tools. It also includes an operational data store and data warehouse collection to support reporting and the data needs of other University systems.
