ONLINE STUDENT ADMISSION SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF KWARA STATE POLYTECHNIC, ILORIN)
This project work is based on online student admission system into Kwara State Polytechnic and the case study is Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, Kwara state.
The computerization is based on how to make the admission process fast, efficient, accurate and more convenient for all the Departments and the Polytechnic as a whole.
A lot of problems are encountered in manual system, thus, these problems are put in to consideration and solutions are being given to them in order to minimize them to a more bearable level or totally eliminate them.

This project is based on the computer application of student’s admission system into Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin.
The computerization of admission system is set out to find a more efficient, effective, well organized, reliable, faster and more accurate means of processing student’s admission into all the institutes of the polytechnics.
A computer based system will assist to reduce the problems of admission which is due to the large number of students seeking admission into the polytechnic.
OBJECTIVE OF THE SYSTEM
The importance of this system cannot be over emphasized, the admission process is a very strategic part in the polytechnic. This admission process is faced with series of problems when determining those who are qualified to be admitted among the student applying. Also, by using manual method, this problem is enormous due to the natural weakness of human being when it gets to tasking job that are very voluminous.
The objective of this project is to minimize the problems encountered during the manual system.
Other objectives are listed below:
i. To reduce the problem of overgrowing students forms
ii. To provide each department with comprehensive on each students
iii. To keep an up-to-date record of student
iv. For easy retrieval of information about students.
WEAKNESS OF THE MANUAL SYSTEM
i. The forms are stored around in the office thereby making the office rough
ii. Shortage of staff which makes the work load on the staff too much and it result in incompetence of staff
iii. The existing manual system is error prove since there is negligence on the part of the officer in charge of registering of the students
iv. The manual method of handling data/information gives room for easy manipulation and is also very tedious and time consuming.
v. Also, in the manual method some forms are lost or misplaced leading to inefficient..
