The benefits of the computerized enrollment system enables the curriculum staff to keep information about students, courses and tracks, and generate the enrollment list and send messages to the students. It also enables the students to prepare their matrices, sign up for courses, get course and track information and send messages to the curricular officer through the application. The curriculum staff has reviewed the program and thought that it could be used in the real-world environment. But according to some bloggers in the internet, there are some problems that can be experienced in this kind of enrollment process. While a computerized enrollment system is an efficient way of storing and tracking information, there must be sufficient training and testing of the programs to insure their accuracy and increase their reliability and efficiency. This effort should be done by the management of the school to further improve the enrollment system.

Enrollment Management is a term used frequently in higher education to describe well-planned strategies and tactics to shape the enrollment of an institution and meet established goals. Plainly stated, enrollment management is an organizational concept and a systematic set of activities designed to enable educational institutions to exert more influence over their student enrollments. Such practices often include marketing, admission policies, retention programs, and financial aid awarding. Strategies and tactics are informed by collection, analysis, and use of data to project successful outcomes.
Activities that produce measurable improvements in yields are continued and/or expanded, while those activities that do not are discontinued or restructured. Competitive efforts to recruit students are a common emphasis of enrollment managers. According to Matthew Quirk, more-advanced enrollment managers also tend to focus as much on retaining admitted students as on deciding whom to recruit and accept. They smooth out administrative hassles, guarantee at-risk students the advising and academic help they need, and ensure that the different parts of the university’s bureaucracy work together to get students out the door with a degree.
Strategic Enrollment Management
Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) is a crucial element of planning for new growth at a university or college as it concerns both academic program growth and facilities needs. SEM focuses on what is best for students’ success while increasing enrollment numbers and stabilizing intuitional revenues. A student’s success, according to an enrollment manager, is often based on the institution’s graduation and retention rates. This means that students are often recruited based on the likelihood of them graduating. While this practice is acceptable for many privately-run selective institutions, it is not a common practice of most public institutions such as community colleges.
A real strategic enrollment management approach looks at the entire student cycle, from entry through graduation. According to Thomas Williams, enrollment management refers to the traditional task of “setting and meeting the goal of assembling a student body that comprises a predetermined and advantageous mix of students in terms of quality, number, and diversity in all its forms.” Strategic enrollment management is a broader, more dynamic task that begins with an understanding of the world around us, anticipates changes, probes institutional mission and goals, modifying them if necessary, and coordinates “campus-wide efforts in such areas as marketing, student recruitment and retention, tuition pricing, financial aid, academic and career counseling, and curriculum reform.”
