  Missouri State University


Planning, design, installation, and support
   of a custom web registration system
Overview
 Planning for a complete application
 Design and development
 Applications for faculty and staff
 Applications for students
 Implementation
 Usage statistics
 Contact and demo information
Planning a complete application
 Many supporting features added prior to core
  registration application
 Core registration application designed with
  input from campus community, including
  deans, several faculty members, the registrar,
  and student representatives
 Committee met each month for two years,
  resulting in 28 modules to support the entire
  application
Design considerations
 All components designed to enhance and
  integrate into existing systems, not replace
  them.
 Two web-based core components—course
  permissions and concurrent enrollment—
  were enhancements to both web reg and in-
  person registration systems.
 On-line contracts system designed to be
  reusable (e.g., freshman housing contracts).
Development
 Core web registration components written by
  four people in 14 weeks, including the time of
  1.5 Systems Analysts and 2.5 Programmer /
  Analysts, using a mature web development
  infrastructure.
 All web systems run from an IIS environment
  using mainly ASP, HTML, and JavaScript.
  Database access is primarily iSeries DB2 with
  some SQL Server. All are ADA compliant.
Applications – Faculty / Staff
 Advising notes
 Advisement folder
 Update departmental close levels for sections
 Prerequisite checking and reporting
 Course permission management
 Concurrent enrollment rules
 Advisee rosters
 Class rosters
Applications – Students
 Student menu
 Find a class
 Course permission requests
 Electronic contract system
 Add / drop classes
 Concurrent enrollment enforcement
 Implementation
  Web registration was delivered on-time and
     enjoyed a 98% approval rating from students
     who used the system.
“I used the system at (another major university) and this one was much less
complicated. The (other system) required several downloads and used
menus which were confusing to use. This system was very easy to use and
not complicated at all. Excellent job.”

“The system worked great! It was easy to follow and made it easy to fix my
schedule if there were conflicts.”

“I really liked registering online, because I live over an hour away. Thanks :)”

“I think this was the best idea ever! It was so easy and fast! Thanks for doing
it!”
Spring 2005 usage
 As of February 1, 2005, 17,874 students were
  enrolled for the spring 2005 semester. Of those 1,982
  were not eligible to use web registration:
      1,436 precollege
      191 first-time freshmen
      355 athletes

 Therefore, 15,892 students were eligible to use web
  registration. Of those:
      8,518 (54%) processed their initial registration on the
       web
      7,374 (46%) processed their initial registration in
       person
Change of schedule
 Spring 2005
     Total Transactions: 18,820
          Web: 9,802
          In Person: 9,018
 Spring 2004
     Total Transactions: 13,645 (all done in person)
     This is nearly a 40% increase in total number
      of change of schedules and nearly a 34%
      decrease of transactions completed in person
      from SP04-SP05.
