This paper presents a distributed system for central exchange of student records in tertiary institutions. A distributed system consists of loosely coupled sites that share no physical components, communicate with one another through various communication media such as high-speed network or telephone lines having a substantial degree of mutual independence. Building distributed Database systems enhance sharing of data, autonomy and continuity of operation. The proposed system is web-based using Extensible Mark-up Language (XML), php and mysql database that ensure the realization of institution-specific requirements and needs. With this system, existing problems of managing student's record in the university will be a thing of the past.
