As technology continues to advance, computers are becoming more part of everyday life. Computers are everywhere at work, at school, and at home . Daily activities either involve the use of or depend on information from a computer. This maybe because computers are used in almost every field and profession like education and office works to perform large number of computer application . It is also the best solution for providing information and a way of communications in every individual and gives better understanding of some event s that can arouse the interest of some particular subject matter.

The computerized world is a highly efficient one. The extensive records will not be a problem to a post industrialized society, likewise the unreliable and slow processing and preparing student record and enrollment summary of report. At Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation Inc. (FIILI) there are hundred students taking several year levels. The populations of the student in mentioned School are continued to grow which means also that an increase of records are handled by the Guidance Councilor.

Clearly the manual system of enrollment and student record keeping are too much time consuming task. Computer can be considered as another instrument for developing a system like enrollment in every school. This can be a great help to those students, teachers and school who are handling many task from providing easier and faster access. Background of the Study LIIFI HISTORY.

Company’s Current Situation Computer as part of the innovation in technology manifests bigger changes in world, economies, banks and other manufacturing centers flourished due to

the catching power of computers in the field of education, not all school can afford to have numbers of computer to update the school manual system, which somehow caused a lot of inaccuracy and inefficiency in the data processing records, rules and regulations, profiles, and programs. The present system of Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation Inc. is done manually such as the enrollment system and record keeping. From the time it was started to operate, they use the old system, the manual Enrollment system. Even nowadays, that they have computers, still they use it for proration of memos and letters. Purpose of the Study

Today, innovations are based on computer-based technology and these are spreading globally. With the use of computer based technology, new knowledge-oriented learning styles are being prevailed to the people. Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation Inc. has been developing new effective ways on how to minimize time consume of enrolment . The purpose of this study was to design a computerized enrolment system for both Public and Private Institutions and to find out its acceptability in terms of construction design and functionality that will replace to the old manual system of Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation Inc.

Objectives of the Study General Objective. To be able to develop an K-12 Enrolment System and Setioning for Elementary and High School that will be used of Lord Immanuel Institute Foundation Inc. (FIILI) and some other school that can use K-12. Specific Objective Specifically, the study aims the following: 1. To analyze the existing system by conducting a research and investigation in the institutions. 2. To be able to identify the common problems encountered in the existing system that will help in the creation and justification of the proposed one. 3.

To design and develop a system that will provide the same task as to that of the existing and add thereof. 4. To show that the proposed system is technically, operationally and economically feasible for implementation. 5. To show that there is a significant difference between the existing and developed software. Hypothesis of the Study Hypothesis (Ha): There is a significant difference between the proposed and the existing system in terms of convenience, efficiency, speed and reliability in disseminating information. Scope and Limitations of the Study

Scope. This study focused in getting relevant data including data of the students and computation of necessary fees, the system will able to print receipt and class list.
