AACRAO recently conducted a survey of its membership to gather information about online registration services. The survey found that there is a high degree of interest in online services and that a large number of institutions already provide online services. The majority of respondents were interested in online services, with interest ratings in each service category of 70 percent or above. Many of the respondents’ institutions were already providing online services, although they were more likely to be providing informational services online, such as class schedules and catalog information, rather than processing services online, such as registration and payment processing. Of those institutions providing online services, most provided those services in-house.
