Using OnePort

OnePort is a secure portal that is your primary source for:

  • students
  • classes
  • advisees
  • class schedules
  • important campus announcements
  • updating your personal/emergency contact information

OnePort is not an online course management tool; Moodle is a separate program used for this purpose.

Logging into OnePort for the first time?

Go to the OnePort login page and click "First Time Login" to get started. You will get your username and UNC Asheville ID number when you begin working at UNC Asheville.

  • Permanent faculty - you will receive your information from Elaine Warren.
  • Adjunct faculty - you will receive your information from Alicia Henry.
  • New staff - you will get your user name and ID number from Human Resources.

Accessing Advisees' Information

One of the most helpful functions in OnePort is having the opportunity to search for your advisees and view their academic information. You may review information on a particular student by selecting Advisee Listing or Searching for a Student.

If you're looking for a student who isn't your advisee and isn't enrolled in your class(es), follow the steps below:

  1. Log into OnePort
  2. Select the Faculty tab
  3. Choose Academic Services
  4. Click "Continue" under Banner Services
  5. Choose Faculty Services
  6. Click "Term Selection" and choose the current term
  7. Choose Student Search
  8. Enter the student's UNC Asheville ID number (the student must provide this number to you)
  9. Select the All radial button (*this is important!)
  10. Confirm your selection. Everything you look at in OnePort will now be about this student until you search for and select another student.

*Note: The UNC Asheville Student ID number is 9 digits long. The UNC Asheville OneCard includes an additional digit at the end to indicate the number of replacement cards a student has received. The additional digit on the OneCard is not part of a student's UNC Asheville ID number and should not be entered when conducting a search in OnePort.

OnePort also gives you access to view your current advisee listing, which includes your advisee Student ID number, contact information and Registration Access Number (RAN). How to view this information:

  1. Log into OnePort
  2. Select the Faculty tab
  3. Choose Academic Services
  4. Click "continue" under Banner Services
  5. Choose Faculty Services
  6. Select  "Advisee Listing"
  7. When prompted, choose the current term (this is important!)

GradPlan (Degree Audit Report)

GradPlan is available 24/7 for students and their advisors to run real time, on-demand degree audits for any of our academic majors. GradPlan charts the academic progress of students who have already declared their majors, while also allowing students who are undeclared the opportunity to run what-if scenarios to see the requirements for a prospective major, minor or program. 

Just follow the steps listed below to begin:

  1. Log into OnePort and click the GradPlan link under the left side, QuickLaunch menu
  2. Enter the Student ID and hit <Enter>, or click the “Find” icon to search for a specific student or group of students
  3. Click the “What if” link on the left side of the audit to run a "What if Analysis" for a major or minor they are considering.

Some important points about GradPlan:

  • Beyond indicating which requirements have been met, GradPlan also shows requirements that have been waived, courses that have been entered as substitutions for the purpose of fulfilling a requirement, and requirements that have been met by means other than a course (such as transfer credit or a placement exam score).
  • GradPlan is an advising tool; students are not cleared for graduation until they have submitted their Application for Graduation and the Office of the Registrar has verified a student's completion of requirements.

If you have questions or concerns about GradPlan, send an email to OneStop@unca.edu. This email is checked regularly and your email will be addressed as soon as possible.

Entering Registration Overrides

Online overrides allow you to grant permission to students who have any of the following registration conflicts into your classes:
  • pre-requisite
  • co-requisite
  • time conflicts
  • class standing restrictions
  • duplicate course (occurs when registering for more than one special topics course in the same semester)
  • closed class (available when waitlists are turned off)
  • permission of instructor 

However, faculty cannot override link, repeat course, or maximum hour errors. These errors must be addressed in the OneStop Office. 

How to enter an online override for your classes in OnePort

  1. Log into OnePort
  2. Select the Self Service Banner tab
  3. Choose Faculty Services
  4. Choose Registration Overrides
  5. Select the semester > Submit
  6. Enter the Student Name or ID# > Submit 
  7. Select the type of override and the course from the dropdown menu. You may need to enter multiple overrides (for example, if the class is full and the student has not taken the pre-requisite, you will need to enter both Closed Class and Pre-requisite overrides).
  8. Click the submit button twice to confirm the override. The student must now register for the class through OnePort.

Important Reminder:

Registering for a course which requires an online override is a two-step process. After the online override is entered into the registration system, students must register for the course either through OnePort or by completing an Add/Drop form in OneStop. Entering an online override into Banner alone does not register a student for the course.
