Abstract: Recently, the world has started a new era of using the data analytical capabilities and tools to help the decision makers in making the wise decision. Several reasons have played critical roles to encourage people to use such capabilities. For example, the amount of data produced has increased dramatically in the last few years. The data that was produced in years before need only a couple of minutes to be produces nowadays. Therefore, there is a need to find a way to process and analyze such data in a way that is beneficial for all parties. Academic field is a valuable source of data that can be categorized in some ways as big data due to its size and other related characteristics. This data has been stored on the storage for tens of years without paying attention to the it value. The value of this data can be utilized by analyzing the data using the data analysis tools. For example, the predictive analytics like regression, clustering, and smoothening techniques. The outcome of this analysis can be used by the faculty member, the administrative staff, and the students as well. The simplest decision that can be used by the students is to decide whether to study as either full or part time given that the other constraints are being considered to help the students taking the wright dictions. The intended analysis is an automated one that is built using the current emergent analysis tools. In this research Hadoop which is open source framework is used. This research gives a promising results in terms of fulfilling the need of the students and the other parties that have a direct connection with providing the services to the student. Such as, the students can now decide which semester is most reasonable to study a course, the value of taking certain courses in summer session, the effect of doing the degree as part time or full time, the effect of living far away from the place where the students are doing their degrees, etc.
