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.
2017-18 and 2018-19 Articulation Agreements
Currently, ASSIST displays articulation agreements and transferability data through the 2016-17 academic year while work on a new ASSIST website remains under development. For the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years, students may refer to course transferability lists (see information box below) available at ASSIST. The projected launch date for the new ASSIST system is May 2019.

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: 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 utilize the new COURSE TRANSFERABILITY TOOL on ASSIST 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: Reporting courses taken in 2017-18 and planned for 2018-19 memo
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.
Applicants should utilize the new COURSE TRANSFERABILITY TOOL on ASSIST for new and revised courses for 2017-18 and 2018-19.
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.
