About ASSIST

ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) is the official repository of articulation for California's public colleges and universities providing the most accurate and up-to-date information available about student transfer in California. ASSIST is a student-transfer information system that displays reports of how course credits earned at one California Community College can be applied when transferred to a California State University or University of California campus.

Delay in posting 2017-18 and 2018-19 Articulation Agreements

Currently, ASSIST displays articulation data up to and including 2016-17. Articulation agreements (i.e. CSU/UC Transferable Course Lists, Major Agreements, Department Agreements, CSU GE-Breadth Transferable Course Lists, and IGETC Transferable Course Lists) for 2017-18 and 2018-19 are not yet available on ASSIST. This delay is due to technical problems encountered prior to the summer 2017 release of a new ASSIST website. The new projected launch date is May 2019.

The ASSIST Coordination Site Team is planning to provide select 2017-18 and 2018-19 articulation agreements as PDF documents on a temporary ASSIST site, however, the timeline for this action is unknown. Major and Department articulation agreements will not be accessible via this temporary site. 

Recommendations for students:

1) Check back on this page regularly for news and updates.

2)  Check www.assist.org for periodic updates including links to select CSU/UC campus websites to view requirements for their majors.

Important Announcements

While work by ASSIST remains underway to provide students with articulation and transferability information beyond 2016-17, students may, for planning purposes, refer to the following Course Reports to view new, revised and deleted DAC courses.

CSU/UC Applicants: Reporting De Anza College courses taken in 2017-18 and planned for 2018-19

Until further notice, students planning to submit applications for a  CSU/UC admission are advised to follow the guidelines posted below when entering coursework into the UC TAP or Cal State Apply systems.

  • CSU Application

    CSU Application: Reporting courses taken in 2017-18 and planned for 2018-19

    Students should enter courses into the CSU admission application as they will appear on their transcripts. Applicants should refer to the following Course Reports, as needed, for new and revised courses for 2017-18 and/or 2018-19:

    If applicants are unable to select a course within the system because it was a new De Anza course, the course(s) must be entered manually.

    If a course has been revised (e.g. department, title, unit value, etc.), applicants should select the course from the system and make the necessary change(s) to reflect the 2017-18 and/or 2018-19 course information.

  •  UC Application

    UC Application: Reporting courses taken in 2017-18 and planned for 2018-19

    For the Fall 2019 UC admissions application, which must be submitted in November 2018, students are advised to wait until the end of October to complete the coursework section of the application.  At that time, UC is expected to provide additional instructions and guidance to applicants, if necessary.

    In the meantime, applicants may refer to the following Course Reports, as needed, to view new and revised courses for 2017-18 and/or 2018-19:

  • UC TAG Application

    UC TAG Application Only: Reporting courses taken in 2017-18 and planned for 2018-19

    (Per UC's memo 8/31/18) Students must enter their college courses under the "My Coursework" tab in the UC TAP portal. UC TAP is linked to ASSIST, which allows students to select UC transferable courses. With the current inaccessibility of new or updated courses in ASSIST since 2017, students must adhere to the following instructions:

    1) If a course is new for 2017-18 and/or 2018-19 and does not appear in the search results, students should manually enter the course into UC TAP exactly as it will appear on the transcript (subject, course number, title, grade and number of units). Refer to the following Course Reports: 


    2)
     If the course is not new but has been updated since 2016-17 (department/subject name change, change in number of units, etc.), students should manually enter the course into UC TAP exactly as it will appear on the transcript (with the current subject name, course number, title, grade and number of units). They should NOT choose the former/obsolete course from the search results, as this could impact their eligibility for transfer. (Note: if the only change to the course is the number of units, e.g. POLI 1, the former course could be selected and the number of units could be changed in the system)  Refer to the following Course Reports: 


    3)
     Students should manually enter all non-transferable courses into UC TAP, as well as coursework from any non-California community college(s).

    4) Students are encouraged to add a note to their TAG application explaining instances when UC transferable courses are manually entered into the system (e.g. SPCH 10 changed to COMM 10; POLI 1 increased from 4 to 5 units) to assist UC admission staff.

    NOTE: Applicants who manually enter UC transferable courses into UC TAP, must manually calculate their UC transferable units and GPA to determine their eligibility for a TAG and UC transfer.
