Frequently Asked Questions

When do I register for classes?

Current students will receive an email through their Georgia Piedmont Tech email account. After receiving the email go into Banner Web. Login to the secure area to find out what is your assigned registration time. This area is found by clicking on Student & Financial Aid, then Registration, then Check Your Registration Status.

Where do I find out what classes are being offered?

Go to Click on Banner Web and then Class Schedule.

What do I do if I get a "test score" or "prerequisite" error message while trying to register on the web?

These error messages mean that one or more of your chosen classes have a required class or test for admissions that your records do not show that you have. You need to contact your advisor for further advisement. Be sure to let him/her know that you attempted to register and received a prerequisite or test score error.

What do I do if I get a message indicating that my banner Web PIN is invalid?

Usually your PIN becomes invalid when you have typed it incorrectly three or more times. Contact Banner Support at x5911 to have it reset. If you get the voice mail, please leave your name, student ID, a call back number, and state that you need your pin reset.

What do I do if I don't know or have forgotten my Banner Web PIN?

Go to Click on Banner Web and then Enter Secure Area. Click on Forgot PIN and follow the instructions.

What do I do when it says that I have a hold?

Go to Banner Web and login, click on Student Services, then Student Records, then View Holds. If it says Student Financial Services and there is an open balance, then you will need to go to the Cashier Office on your campus. They will have to lift your hold.

I cannot log into Blackboard Learn. What do I do?
