Introduction This generation is intensely attached with technology. Almost everything can be done with
technology. Technology for the users provides good consolation and comfort. Many await the enrollment schedule of the school they are studying in. During enrollment time they begin to rush and flock to school as early as possible. Vacations are cut short, young ones are sometimes abruptly separated from the security and comfort of home and family just to be able to study in a good school, relaxation and leisure quickly put to an end that give way to the serious pursuit of study. The technology today plays a very important role in our society. It lessens error of work by using machines. It makes us work easier and faster and reduces costs to an organization from paper works up to computerized working system. Many manual transactions can be computerized by using software applications or computer systems to make work easier. Nowadays, computer based system is commonly used by every company and institution and one of this is Computerized Enrollment System. Computerized Enrollment System serves as a vital part of a school for easy and convenient way of enrolling a student. The latest Student Enrollment Systems include features such as computerized registration forms, enrollment forms and safer data keeping. Almost all aspect of the industry prefers computerized systems because of its greater offers and services. The system is now greatly recognized. Furthermore, the demand for better Student Enrollment Systems also increases.
Background of the Study Information systems are distinct from information technology in that an information
system is typically seen as having an Information and Communication Technology component. Information systems help to control he performance of business processes. An information system is a work system whose activities are devoted to processing (capturing, transmitting, storing, retrieving, manipulating and displaying) information. Enrollment system is the must have system in a school. When a student is enrolling for a specific course the school requires all the necessary information of the student. When the school retrieves the important information from the student, the encoder now should input the details of the student in the enrollment system. In the enrollment system, the school can trace what are the standings of the students. The data of the student are inserted in the enrollment system it includes payment, subjects, section, subject rooms, etc. Lack of enrollment system in a school it can lead to chaos and troubles, the students will be confuse on what they should do and how they will do to be able to enroll. It is extremely useful in the school in the way of making the processes of enrolling much easy. Halapitan SDA Elementary School is privately managed. But, their enrollment system on the said school is still in manual. The manual enrollment system was too slow and too difficult for the school to manage thousands of records of the students and at the same time, it is too difficult for the student to wait and stand for a long time just to be enrolled because of their manual process. The purpose of this case study is to update the manual process into an automated system, which is easy to perform any transactions on their business.
1.2 Statement of the Objectives Identifying the mechanics that makes up a good and efficient Student Enrollment System. Obtaining a system that is fully equipped with reliable database. A system that is well organized and user-friendly. Identifying the advantages, disadvantages and risks that is encountered by the whole system. And identifying the possible errors and their proposed solutions. 1.2.1 General Objective To come up with a functional enrollment system that will allow users to submit forms such as the registration, payment and enrollment forms in the comforts of the in house facility and also allow the administrators to keep track and maintain information about the data that was gathered from the submitted forms. To identify the purpose of the system and to run a system that is efficient and reliable to both administrators and users. 1.2.2 Specific Objectives ➢ To produce a report that contains the lists of those currently enrolled and registered students; ➢ To store collected information from the students and those entered by the administrator; ➢ To update and/or modify information that stored; ➢ To view entries and names of registered and enrolled students; ➢ To search specific information of student names; and ➢ To view lists from Current Students and Registered Students.
1.3 Significance of the Study The study is significant for the innovation of manual ways of registration and enrollment to a higher-end technology. It is significant to the registrars, faculty and students of the institution that will use the system. It provides a clear definition of its functions. The study will define the advantages with the use of the proposed system. It will identify new possibilities that may help ease workloads. It will serve as an instrument to gather more people to recognize and use such system. 1.4
Scope and Delimitation of the Study 1.4.1 Scope of the System The system includes a computerized registration and enrollment. It allows users to fill in the form and submit. It allows the administrator side to retrieve information. It can severely reduce the amount of duplicate effort required for enrolled students. It also allow users to view whether their information has been passed. 1.4.2 Delimitation of the System It limits to store the data of the students (First name, Last name, Middle initial, and section).The use of the system is limited to school registrar only, status of the pupils (grade level, unpaid accounts), and print related reports. The system is not web based. It cannot be altered or modified by the users. It cannot show the results instantly to users. Users may not remove or delete the information once they’ve been registered.

Often considered the classic approach to the systems development life The waterfall model describes a development method that is linear and sequential.
model is based on the metaphor that when one phase was finished, the development proceeds to the next phase with no turning back.
2.0.2 Phase 1: Planning The researchers started by determining the appropriate topic. The researchers decided on the enrollment system considering the necessities of the society. The group researched to be able to create relevant questions. They prepared 16 questions that will be used for the interview. The researchers conducted interview to our respondent last August 3, 2012 at Halapitan SDA Elementary School. The rest of the information was gathered from other resources such as the web and books.
2.0.3 Phase 2: Analysis The researchers have prepared an interview with a proponent. The interview served as the basis for the creation of the function of the system. The researchers planned to gather enough information and skills in building and creating good databases and well-organized facade or interface. All relevant information has been gathered, the researchers decide to collect the software and resources needed to build the system. The researchers settled to use Visual Basic6.0 and Microsoft Access. 2.0.4 Phase 3: Design All function features of the system chosen for analysis are described independently in any computer platform. This time the group proceed to design the system on how the user and the developer, develop understanding on how the system will operate. Also designing the terms and reports and some databases needed and in this stage we finalize the software and hardware design. 2.0.4 Phase 4: Implementation The information is coded, tested, installed and supported in the organization. Then this phase the group starts writing the code of the program that makes the system work. Testing the entire system in order
to find and correct error. The system will then be
implemented to the business. 3.0 Data Gathering Procedure and Output
