This chapter gives an overview about the aim, objectives,
background and operation environment of the system.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Student Registration Number system is an application which
are generally small or medium in size. Itis used by school management tocreate
and manage the student registration number using a computerized system where
he/she can create registration number for the Student, create a report of all
the registration number of the student to each of their department and facultites,Storing
the registration details for reference purpose. With this computerized system
there will be no loss of record or member record whichgenerally happens when a
non computerized system is used.If user’s position is admin, the user is able
to create and maintain all the registration number details.All these modules
are able to help the Registrar to manage the registration information with more
convenience and in a more efficient way as compared to Registration number
systems which are not computerized.

registration of the student was so much that there were cases where files
containing the details of the student and his/her registration number got
missing,unidentification of the student’s department and faculties because of
lack of registration number, time required to record as well as presenting an
Lack of effectiveness in their methods of
record keeping, further compounds the problem.
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
The project aims and objectives that will be achieved after
completion of this project are discussed in this subchapter. The aims and
objectives are as follows:
To resolve Registration number issue
To Request column for the Registrar
to generate registration number for the student.
To create a separate column for registering
the School information.
To provide a login page where the
admin can have access to register and generate registration number for the
To update the student registration
number based on department and faculties.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The significance of this study was to
help and give a benefit to the student, staff and school management.The
computerized library system would improve the monitoring capacities of those
who maintain the system. Furthermore, the registrar would be much guided when
it comes to registering and generating the registration number of the student, letting
them arrange it promptly and accordingly.
LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
of academic materials.
of financial support
of programming software such as Visual Basic.Net.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This research work will concentrate on
Registration, Report, School managment, and LogOut menu which include handling
of some queries like; updating record, deleting record and viewing the student
information via S/N, Name of Student, Reg Number and department as the case may
be. It is a case study of MarcusICT Academy.
