I.0 INTRODUCTION

Information System (IS) or application landscape is any combination of information technology and people's activities using that technology to support operations, management, and decision-making. In a very broad sense, the term information system is frequently used to refer to the interaction between people, algorithmic processes, data and technology. In this sense, the term is used to refer not only to the information and communication technology (ICT) an organization uses, but also to the way in which people interact with this technology in support of business processes. Some make a clear distinction between information systems, and computer systems ICT, and business processes. Information systems are also different from business processes. Information systems help to control the performance of business processes. One type of Information System is Transaction Processing System. Transaction processing systems (TPS) automate the handling of data about business activities or transactions, which can be thought of as simple, discrete events in the life of an organization. The analysis and design of TPS means focusing on the firm’s current procedures for processing transactions, whether those procedures are manual or automated. The focus on current procedures implies a careful tracking of data capture, flow, processing and output. The goal of TPS development is to improve transaction processing by speeding it up, using fewer people, improving efficiency and accuracy, integrating it with other organizational information systems or providing information not previously available. One example of Transaction processing system is Enrollment System.

Enrollment system that will provide the needed and storing information in a faster, more convenient way by storing file of the student enrollees in a computer system that will lessen the effort of faculty staff in storing files of each student every now and then. This will also server as information especially for the irregular students, freshmen, transferee, and professor in able to get access in course, subject, professor, and student enrollees.

I.I Background of the study

Enrollment system is a good example of a computer generated process. This can be lessen the workload and provides accurate information needed of the school. As a result, it will benefit not only the student but the administration as a whole. Enrollment system is a very essential in a school. In the case of Brentwood School Inc., it is composed of a manual system. Administrator used a manual system in recording and retrieving student’s information. She also has information about student’s payment. In fact, she does all the record keeping just by using ball pen and columnar sheet. On the other hand, registrar department also used manual system as a way of recording and retrieving student information.

Every piece of ongoing research needs to be connected with the work already done to attain an overall relevance and purposes. The background of the study thus becomes a link between the research proposed and the studies already done. Far Eastern University Enrollment System, with its 25,000 students, ranks among the biggest Universities in the country in terms of population. And with a large population comes multiple problems in enrollment, student records and related data. Wanting a lasting solution to the problem, FEU asked consultants for recommendations. The result was a decision to automate FEU's enrollment system. FEU decided to automate the enrollment system in two phases: (1), the development of a system for enrollment and student records for Phase I, and (2) the integration of the student's financial records for. They worked closely with SQL*Wizard to pilot E*Wizard, an integrated system for student enrollment that contains modules with extensive inquiry and reporting capabilities, FEU plotted the move to launch an integrated system during the second semester.
