Some schools and universities have its own and unique process of checking student attendances. Some do it manually while some uses advanced technology like computers, biometrics, and etc. In the case of University of the Immaculate Conception wherein a huge number of students are enrolled, monitoring of students’ attendance during events is a tedious job. The purpose of this study is to create an Android application that will automate the process of the attendance monitoring. The study’s main goal in developing the application is to minimize the time needed to completely monitor the attendance of student attendees whenever school activities are held. The researchers were guided by Experimental research method. In the development of the application, the researchers implemented Iterative/Incremental Model which included the need for understanding the Android platform as a whole, and undergoing the process of developing the Android application itself. The results of the system evaluation suggests that the application was able to monitor students’ attendances within the premises of the activity conducted. In conclusion, the application would function best when used outdoor as GPS coordinates are difficult to determine in indoor places.
