Report on Registration Procedures at Ninety-Six Colleges and Universities.
Cincinnati Univ., OH. Dept. of Instructional Studies.
A questionnaire concerning registration practices and policies was mailed to the registrars of 108 colleges and universities. Ninety-six institutions responded, including 70 with an enrollment of 10,000 or more students. 82% of the schools indicated that in-person registration could be completed in one location. 91% have a deadline beyond which a student cannot register and 89 schools have a penalty for late registration. 72 schools give upper division students some type of scheduling priority over the lower division students and 91% indicated that students must see a faculty advisor prior to completion of registration. More than half of the institutions prepare fee statements by using data processing equipment. 25 schools use computers to develop a master course schedule, 36 use computers to schedule students into classes, and 22 use computers to handle student financial aid. Several schools indicated they planned to increase computer usage and make greater use of remote terminals. A sample questionnaire with the composite results and a list of the responding schools are attached. (AF)
