Maintenance (for DBA and Registrar)
ClassWeb Administration (for DBA and Registrar)
Classweb 2.03 offers a fairly usable interface to all of the database functions
required of a Registrar, so this has greatly alleviated the workload for the

You will want to select an existing Faculty member to be Registrar. A
Registrar is really a dependable WebTech from any department who focuses on
You can use phpMyAdmin to manually add User-ID's to the "admin" group in the
