Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Ttiurldqy, Sgplimbtr 16, University registrar's office efficient with records of 15.000 students on file By RIC SWniART Staff Wrilor If the tirac-wom cliche "all registrars are ogres" holds wa- ter, the University of Letli- bridge's Jack Ovialt must have missed his calling, as he and six employees in the office have the responsibility for reg- istering and assisting stu- dents. Mr. Oviatl said the efficiency of his department means bet- ter conditions for the rest of the university. "We make the administration of the institution easier for stu- dents and faculty, and act as an arbiter between the two he said. "In this role, we help the teacher by reducing his admin- istrative tasks, allowing him to get on with the job of instruct- ing." He said many faculty mem- bers often feel the registrar's office is a hurdle to clear, for anything they want to do. "We have tried, with some success, to reverse this thought, and now there are some faculty people who come to the office to get things be said. With a record of stu- dents on file. Mr. Oviatt had to resort to a numerical filing sys- tem which is adapted to a com- puter. Working From the first year of the existence of a post-sec- ondary education institution in Lelhhridge, the junior college, the numerical system uses the last two numbers of the aca- demic year followed by n four- digit number for each student. The first number used, as- signed to Wayne C. Anderson of Lothbridge, when the new sys- tem was introduced, is 57-0001. Mr. Anderson enroled in L.TC in 1957 and after working, is now finishing his education at the U of L as a full time student. His identification number is still Mr. Oviatt said the U of L gained university status July 1, 19C7 and at that point, had stu- dents at all stages of three and four-year degree programs, "It was a tremendous prob- lem to develop a record sys- tem to handle the said Mr. Oviatt. "The first academic opera- tion for the U of L was a sum- mer school session in 1967 with 138 students, using six courses borrowed from the universities of Calgary and Alberta. "We had started to develop a filing system for a two-year program, which it was at that time, but when the institution gained full university status, the problems grew." He said the computer idea was not introduced until the fall semester the first year with all previous registrations done manuniiy. It was at this point Mr, Oviatt developed the numeri- cal system with identification numbers which fit into the com- puter program. "The system we devised for the first semester, which gave class lists to the professors the first day of classes, was used for two he said. "The system used computer cards punclied for each course section, on a first-come-first- served basis, and it worked fairly well until enrolment in- creased significantly." In 1960, a new system using two cards, one for the instruc- tor and one for the registrar, was introduced, allowing more flexibility for the student to choose courses. "We found that 60 per cent of the student body made sig- nificant changes in its curric- ulum and with the two-card system, the student could make changes easily by exchanging the course card." He said this system allows the instructor to exercise some discretion on which students can enter the course. It also allows the registrar's office to produce a virtually of- ficial class list for the instruc- tors in about three weeks. Also under the system, the student can shop around the first week to decide which courses he wants to take, at no cost to himself. At the end of the first week, all students must declare a study list of which courses they will enrol in for the semester. "This system, which is uni- que to Canada, fits in well with the flexible cumailar require- ments at the U of L where stu- dents tend to have fewer course requirements and more op- he said. Working in terms of student population with the lowest num- ber of staff members and the lowest budget of any regis- trar's office in Canada, Mr. Oviatt still considers Leth- bridge to be one of the best. "It's due to the excellence and dedication of the staff that the office can carry on under these he said. "All of them identify with the institution, particularly at reg- istration time when they are more than willing to put out extra effort to operate the of- fice efficiently." Included on the staff are Helen Williams, personal sec- retary to Mr. Oviatt; Ray Mc- Hugh, assistant registrar; his secretary Carol Neilson; Jean Charles, receptionist; and Col- .een Thomas and Sandy Shige- admissions secretaries.
