Abstract
The proponents proposed Automated Student Attendance using fingerprint Biometrics designed for Android Smart phone. The system is used to automate the student’s attendance. It uses Fingerprint Biometrics to check that the student is really attending the class. Student attendance and information are stored in a database connected to a server and can be accessed by parents using their android phones. The system allows the administrator to enroll the students in a particular course. Teachers and parents have the privilege to access the number of absences of the students. The students need to sign in and sign out in a particular station as a basis of their attendance.

Upon completion, parents and instructors can monitor the attendance status of their children through this mobile application. It is designed for Android platform and that the parents are using Android phones for this project. Another purpose of developing this project is to automate the manual attendance of the students in University of San Jose - Recoletos.

CHAPTER 1
THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE
Introduction:
Parents send their children to school for education. They spend thousands of pesos just to have their children be educated in universities or colleges. There are some parents who are far from their children’s school, especially those who live in provinces and their children are studying in the city, thus create hindrance in actual supervision.

One of the parents’ problems is the class attendance or performance of their children. They don’t know whether or not their children are attending their respective classes.
The team comes up with a solution to this problem, the Automated Student Attendance using Fingerprint Biometrics designed for Android Smart phone. The system is used to automate the manual checking of students’ attendance. It uses fingerprint Biometrics to check if the student is really attending the class. Student attendance and information are stored in a database connected to a server and can be accessed through an android phone. The system only allows the administrator to enroll the students in a particular course. The teachers and parents have the privilege to access the number of absences of the student. The system also allows the students to sign in...
