In our college , the students have to register with their laptop's MAC address with the administrator to use the wi-fi access to the system. otherwise, Even though is signal is available, we cant use the wi-fi services. Can you computer experts, provide me a way to use the wi-fi without registering the MAC address ..

There's no easy way to do that due to the network architecture. Also, you probably shouldn't try to bypass network policy set by admins, as this is against the law in many countries and also against the terms of service of SuperUser.
MAC address is operating at Layer 2 of the network stack (data link) which is very low level and not really possible to bypass. If it were possible to bypass these restrictions then the security model of layer 2 would be broken. That's why it's not possible, short of some unforeseen vulnerability.
