Abstract: Data mining is the science and techniques used to analyze data to discover and extract previously unknown patterns. It is also considered a main part of the process of knowledge discovery in databases (KDD). In this paper, we introduce a supervised learning technique of building a decision tree for King Abdulaziz University (KAU) admission system. The main objective is to build an efficient classification model with high recall under moderate precision to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the admission process. We used ID3 algorithm for decision tree construction and the final model is evaluated using the common evaluation methods. This model provides an analytical view of the university admission system.
