The purpose of this study was to analyze registration processes in colleges and universities of Northern California, Nevada, and Oregon having an enrollment between one thousand and five thousand students. The specific purposes of the study were 1) to determine what general patterns of organization existed for registration in representative colleges, and 2) to determine how the processes of registration were viewed by students, faculty, and general administrative officers (as perceived by the registrar of his functional equivalent).
