Abstract: Using intelligent computer systems technology to support the academic advising process offers many advantages over the traditional student advising. The objective of this research is to develop a prototype student advising expert system that assists the students of Information Systems (IS) major in selecting their courses for each semester towards the academic degree. The system can also be used by academic advisors in their academic planning for students. The expert system is capable of advising students using prescriptive advising model and developmental advising model. The system is supported with an object-oriented database and provides a friendly graphical user interface. Academic advising cases tested using the system showed high matching (93%) between the automated advising provided by the expert system and the advising performed by human advisors. This proves that the developed prototype expert system is successful and promising.
