About ASSIST

The ASSIST website is the official repository of articulation information for California's public colleges and universities. ASSIST (which stands for Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) is a student-transfer information system that displays reports of how course credits earned at a California community college can be applied when transferred to a California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) campus.
