An administrator then is expected to either approve or deny the registration request. An email is then sent to the user indicating whether they were approved or denied. If the user has been approved, the email will include the login credentials. Until a user is approved, the user will not be able to login to the site.
Only approved users will be allowed to login to site. Users waiting for approval as well as denied users will not be able to login to site.
