1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The essence for one going to school is for better survival tomorrow wherein becoming what he or she is capable of becoming what he or she wants in life. And the desire of knowledge is the natural feeling of mankind and every human being whose mind is not debauched will be willing to give all that is required of him or her to get knowledge. It is on this basic idea that knowledge oriented organization (school) has been set up as a ground for people to go in and learn in respond to paying for their acquired knowledge for tomorrow’s success. According to Oxford Dictionary of Current (6th Edition), fee is defined as an amount of money that one pay for professional services. Simply put, school fee is that fixed interval payment made by a student or students to the school he or she attends. From the definition, one can outline that school fee payment supposed to be in a regular interval that is timely, although sometimes may not be that ready by the student due to some financial lapses. Financial lapses poses a lot of problems to school management because of some pressing needs.
However, when students refuse to pay their school fees on time the school management seems to lack money in the purse which at this renders the management ineffective. Apart from the management being ineffective financially, students also face barriers by not being allowed to write their examinations which are one of the academic frustrations or setbacks. Using computer – based system for fees payment necessitated this research in order to help solve this problems of either delayed fee payment, or the student not paying at all or the fee being misused/mismanaged or entangled with criminal attack either on the side of students at the course of payment or the side of bursary department/school management.
Using Houdegbe North American University Benin as a case study, the research has the intention of creating a software that could process students school fees payment to Houdegbe North American University Benin bank accounts and electronically lodging individual students fees indicating name, department, registration number, level/class, date of payment, amount of money paid, academic session/semester/ bank’s name, account number, phone number, school name and other personal records etc. This will enhance prompt payment and safe delivery and automatically stop the management and students from being frustrated financially and otherwise.
Before, now, people/students often embraced technological changes with the fear of the unknown and as such decided to carryout activities their usual way (manually). However, the 21st century came with a lot of challenges that only the use of computer can solve problem effectively. Electronic/Automated payment of student school fees in any school would boost the school management morale and thereof.re increase productivity. However, this supports the mash low’s theory of management which is of the view that metrication of an organization financially will bring increase in productivity.
Therefore, the payment of student school fees in a particular school enhance the productivity of such school for both the management and students as well, even as a computer – based system is used for such payment for easiest and fastest mode of operation as well as accurate security and good financial management; which Houdegbe North American University Benin is operating now.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The problems encountered with the manual method of school fees payment is viewed from two perspectives, the school management’s problems and the student’s problem. The school management problems have to do with the processing of students information about their paid fees with mistakes and come out with sum total and grand total amount of the paid fee from each class, department or across all the students who paid as a whole. The student problems on the other hand have to do with the embarrassment from the bursary department, such as wasting of time, mistake made in the receipt and criminal threatening and being driven out from the examination hall for not showing evidence of school fee receipt or even after paying shortly before the examination.
1.3 AIIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between the manual and automated student school fees payment system in Houdegbe North American University Benin, Republic of Benin.
Other objectives include;
- To create on automated-based system for students school fee payment.
- To determined the conversion of manual system of school fees payment.
- To computerized/automated method to ease the stress of students’ information processing during payment.
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This research work would help the management and students of Houdegbe North American University Benin to have a better knowledge of operating on the method of automated students fees payment and how this can be effective through practical aspect of the device.
It is obvious that the manual system is slow in operation and also ineffective in service. The in-convenience brought about by the manual system could be over-whelmed by the use of more effective and advanced system. In other words, an automated system minimizes time delay procedures during student’s fee payment.
1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This study is restricted to Houdegbe North American University Benin and no other firm. Data used for the study were gotten from the case study only. It focused on automated student’s school fee payment only.
