In the last several years, Dasmariñas City had several colleges and vocational schools, but no affordable private school to call its own. Only few parents could afford to send their children to the nearest private schools 10 or more kilometers away from the city. These parents believed in the values of private school education so they clamored for the opening of FEAPISAT.
Far East Asia Pacific Institute of Science and Technology was founded and directed by Edwin Bascon on March, 2011. As the years go by, structure improvements took place, the school built 3 branches; Tanza which iss the main branch, General Trias and now in Dasmariñas City. The private vocational school offers 2-year courses like Information Technology, Business Outsourcing Management and Hotel and Restaurant Management. Dasmariñas Branch currently has 300 students and more students are enrolling. It has 30 staff which includes the administration, registrar, accounting, instructors and maintenance.
Enrollment system plays a very important role in the school because all transactions needed are done there. The current enrollment system of the school still uses manual method which takes a lot of time and effort. In order to solve this kind of slow action, an automated enrollment system offers easier and faster transactions.
1.2 Statement of the Problem
1.2.1 General Problem
The main problem is that the current enrollment system of the school uses manual method which resulted to slow transactions.
1.2.2 Specific problem
The following are the specific problems in the manual enrollment system:
1. Enrollment transactions such as retrieving information, processing of filled-up enrollment forms, assessing and computing of tuition fees which consumes a lot of time.
2. Difficulty in managing data and information. It is hard to manage and search papers and files in cabinets where you put the student information.
3. Inability to provide faster and more reliable updates. It is difficult to update student information with a long manual process method. It takes a lot of time and pressure.
4. Very prone to inaccuracy when it comes to providing data reports.
5. Information loss and failure to back-up files when a power interruption or a natural disaster occurs because backing-up files is only done usually after office hours.
1.3.1 General Objective
