Student Accounts

As a student at Gwinnett Tech, you have several student accounts and sites you’ll be visiting regularly to best manage your education, all of which should be accessed through the student dashboard.

Your Gwinnett Tech Student Account on Banner is an important source of information about tuition, fees and financial aid, and should be checked frequently. It’s the quickest, easiest way to view your financial aid disbursement and to determine your student account balance.
