Application of the Computing System to Student Registration
Once the University offered more degree programmes and launched more new Faculties, the number of students increased. It was thus vital to have an efficient student data filing system. At this time progress was made in the data filing system and, in 1975, the University established the Central Registration Office under the administration of Academic Affairs in the Office of the President, to be responsible for student registration and to provide a student registration service by computer. The computer-assisted registration was first tried on freshmen in the Faculty of Science. In 1976, the student registration service by the computing was expanded to cover all freshmen in all Faculties, except for the Faculty of Law. This benefitted the administration of programmes and enabled students to have a wider choice of the class and made the use of classrooms and educational instruments more efficient. By 1980, the application of the computing system to undergraduate student registration covered all Faculties and it was later expanded to cover graduate student registration in all Faculties.
