The Adamson University (AdU) is one of the fastest growing institutions that provide the highest quality service in information technology that is responsive and meets the technological needs and computerization requirements of the academic community, non-academic, and the various administrative offices in the University. The Information Technology Center that is responsible for the supervision of computing facilities had introduced online enrollment in order to provide students convenient services in process their enrollment. The online enrollment was implemented abruptly by the administration with the supervision of ITC. However, majority of students are complaining because the online enrollment does not promote convenience. The ITC admitted that they did not anticipate that there will be bugs and glitches in the system. The Adamson Learning Management System or the site responsible for online enrollment was down for 1-2 days because it crashed due to overloading of accounts logging at the time when the online enrollment opens. The problems as reported by the facilitators are because of lack of preparedness and consultation to the students. The study will be aligned to the perception of the students of Adamson University, particularly the students of Social Sciences. As a student, enrollment system is important as it the one that assess the students, determine what subject to enroll, what subjects are still enroll-able, what time is the subject to be enrolled, how many units per subject and how much is the units per subject. If the university failed to meet its purpose to promote convenient and quality services to its students, it will be a burden to the majority of the students especially the irregular students. More or less 73% of the populations of students of AdU are irregular students. This study is designed to measure the effectiveness of online enrollment system as perceived by the students.

The researcher shall use descriptive method of research in gathering data and information. Although the data description is factual, accurate and systematic, the research cannot describe what caused a situation. Thus, Descriptive research cannot be used to create a causal relationship, where one variable affects another. In other words, descriptive research can be said to have a low requirement for internal validity.
The primary location to gather information for the research study is at Social Sciences of Department of Adamson University.
1. The online enrollment of Adamson University is effective and convenient to students. 2. The online enrollment of Adamson University is not effective and convenient to students.
