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 or University of California campus.

Delay in Posting Agreements for 2017-18, 2018-19

Currently, ASSIST displays articulation agreements and data through 2016-17. Articulation agreements for 2017-18 and 2018-19 are not yet available on ASSIST.  This includes CSU/UC transferable course lists, major agreements, department agreements, CSU GE-Breadth transferable course lists and IGETC transferable course lists. This delay is due to technical problems encountered prior to the launch of a new ASSIST website. The current projected launch date is May 2019.

While there are plans to provide select 2017-18 and 2018-19 articulation agreements on a temporary ASSIST site, the timetable for doing so is unknown. Major and department articulation agreements will not be available on 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.

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   memo

    Review the "Presenting Yourself" for transfer applicants guide on the UC Application log-in page.

    If a course is new for 2017-18 and/or 2018-19 and does not appear as a course option, students should manually enter the course exactly as it will appear on the transcript (subject, course number, title, grade and number of units)

    If the course is not new but has been updated since 2016-17 (department/subject name change, change in number of units, etc.) and the change isn't reflected in the application system, students should manually enter the course exactly as it will appear on the transcript (with the current subject name, course number, title, grade and number of units).  Do NOT choose the former/obsolete course from the search results, as this could impact their eligibility for transfer.  Refer to the following, as needed: 

    Students should manually enter all non-transferable courses and coursework from non-California community colleges.

    Students are encouraged to add a note in the Academic History Comments area explaining instances when UC transferable courses are manually entered into the system (for example, SPCH 10 changed to COMM 10; POLI 1 increased from 4 to 5 units) to assist UC admission staff.
