Student registration systems that are in place at many universities require students to come to the campus and register for respective courses. Such systems put strain on the computing and human resources available at educational institutions. Some of the problems that are inherent to these systems include time consumption in the registration process, pooling of computing and administrative departments, and an acute increase in the staff requirements to complete the registration process in a short span of time for all students. This project concentrated on the development of a Web-based student registration system that would alleviate the inherent problems by providing an efficient, fast, and effective registration process that is accessible through the Internet. Several advantages can be realized from this prototype. All the administrative departments involved in the registration process can integrate their functions to provide a comprehensive process that would enable the student to register for courses, pay the fees, and get the financial aid based on the eligibility. The prototype developed in this project provides an additional option of posting grades of the students on the University's Web site, thus enabling the students to view their grades without having to come to the campus or access any cumbersome telephone-based processing systems. The full-scale model of this prototype will support students, administrative staff, and faculty of any educational institution in managing their time and resources effectively through on-line communication.
