ABSTRACT

This project is centered on an online registration system using Caritas University as a case study. It concentrates on the design of a dynamic web application and departmental portal and functional database responsible for an online registration with an aim of facilitating electronic method/means of school fees payment, course form registration; designation of course advisers to students, management of departmental staff, academic activities of students, among others, hence helping the institution to overcome the problems of manual registration system. This manual process could be tedious, clumsy, inefficient and easily dispensable. It can result in delayed services, complaints from all involved (both students and staff), loss of files which could easily due to natural or manmade disaster, bulkiness, inadequacy of proper storage in the right files and lastly unavailability of information about the department for intending students.

Therefore, this project provides a web application as well as database to have these records and to make life easier in this area. The development tools used for this project include Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP), (Structured Query Language) Relational Database Management System (RDMS) and JAVAScript.
