Chapter 1: Introduction
The computerized enrollment system process the way of the school transaction can work easier and better way how the implement for the enrollment system. It brought a new level of the enrollment transaction. The said system can lessen the time for processing time of transaction because it is quick and automated. The hardware equipments like desktop computers and printers can process the transaction in order to work for to be done faster.
1.1 Background of the Study
The group programmers develop a proposed software system to analyze the particular problems in the school. The processing time of the transaction might be minimized how to access the student records very quickly rather than the usual traditional manual system. Another benefit of the proposed system is the convenient way of the storing and retrieving student information made easy and for the future use. The Academia De Covina, Inc old practices may replace for the group programmer’s proposed system that will cut down the cost of the materials needed for manual processing of the enrollment and reduce much effort.

The Online Registration System Site that the team plans to make is like simple registration form needed to input and to get all the data from new or old students.
1.5 Scopes and Limitations
The Desktop Computer or Laptop is the one of the useful equipment for the software system. The computer is a machine instructed and operated only by human. There is an advantage and disadvantage of using the said system.
Log-in module will enable the user access their concern works for the safety management of records and confidentially purposes.
It limits the login during the trying to access of the account. After the program iterated 3 times if the needed password didn’t match given to the employee, this program temporarily block inability to access the program.
Student Identification System
The Student may be identified by its unique number given by this system. The ID number is a more useful data can be attached in the student information because it can call easily coming from the database to view their personal information.
Recycle Bin Module

The program can print sample papers
Into hardcopy which the program display the fixed print-outs (Official Receipts, Documents Forms and other Reports) if they didn’t want to edit in other software. One of the features added from the software “Visual Basic.Net”.
Power Generated System
