ISU to test Web registration

by Diana Pounds

New freshmen on campus for orientation in June will help test a new way to register for classes -- via the Web.

The students will be part of a pilot program to test the new Web registration system, developed by teams in the Registrar's Office and Administrative Data Processing.

"After selected students try the system this summer," registrar Kathleen Jones said, "we'll have a better idea of the modifications that will be needed to offer Web registration to all students. If all goes according to plan, we hope to be able to open Web registration to everyone in October, when students register for spring classes."

Touch-tone phone registration will continue to be available to students, Jones said. "Web registration will give students another convenient way to register for classes or change their class schedules. We know students will like this option because we've received a number of requests for Web registration from students and their parents."

Web registration builds on AccessPlus, a popular online system that gives ISU students secure Web-based access to their transcripts, class schedules, university bills, financial aid records and other services. In 1998, the Iowa State community accessed AccessPlus more than a million times. AccessPlus services are available at
