This paper presents a novel concept to improve upon the processes in university environment using RFID technology. A system is implemented for the automation of time and attendance using RFID systems. The students and faculty members are provided with RFID devices/tags. When these tags pass through the reader generated interrogation field, they transmit information back to the reader, thereby identifying them. The RFID system makes it possible to monitor the movement of tagged users and record their real time data and pass it to processing system to maintain a log. Using the recorded information, this system is capable of (1) marking attendance (2) marking unauthorized entry (3) probation analysis (4) attendance weightage calculations (5) submission of warnings via emails (6) SMS to parents to keep them updated about their child's progress in the institute (7) a dedicated Web site for the availability of the processed data for the users of the system. The entire processing is done without human intervention. The system is comprehensive, effective and efficient, thus can help in automating the students' administration
