Overview of the Current System and Related Systems

Current System
The proposed system lets the students view or print their transcript of records, statement of accounts, schedule of subjects and account balances without the need to request for these documents or log-in to their Integrated University Information System (IUIS) accounts.

The current system in requesting for transcript of records and statement of accounts needs a request form or order of payment. The student then pays the specified amount in the cashier and presents the receipt to the registrar. The requested documents are then released after several hours or even days. A receiving form is then filled up by the student upon receiving the requested document.

Furthermore, for students to have a printed copy of their schedule, they need to log-in to Internet cafés and have their schedule of subjects printed from their IUIS account. Their balances are also monitored from their personal account.
