Senior Project - Oasis


Online Academic Advising System

Senior Project: 2002-2003
Matthew (Hexar) Anderson, William Butler, David Johnson, Nathaniel Kummer and David Speidel

The Department of Computer Science offers BS, MS, ME, and PhD degrees in Computer Science. With more than 500 undergraduates, the department was in need of a productive academic advising system, and although there were attempts to create software-based advising systems in the past, they were retired because they were not accessible enough to the students and were very difficult to maintain. Since then, countless hours have been spent manually filling out degree audits, going over transfer decisions, and advising students about possible course choices. This is not only inefficient, but it is also prone to error.

The goal of this project was to eliminate most of this manual work by providing a simple, accessible, and robust interface for students and academic advisors alike. The software supports three different user types: students, advisors, and administrators. Students may perform degree audits, view their transcripts, view their transfer and waiver decisions, and do future course planning. Advisors not only can perform these same functions on a student-by-student basis, but can also manage general transfer rules. Finally, administrators are able to manage advisors and setup and maintain graduation requirements. The system was developed in a Red Hat Linux environment using PHP and MySQL.
