Will This Course Transfer?ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s public colleges and universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California.
ASSIST is not associated with a single college or university, but provides general information for all public institutions in California. Since there are many variables involved in providing guidance for an individual student, this site does not provide academic or career counseling. Your academic counselor at your community college or an admissions or departmental advisor at the university you plan to attend are best prepared to answer your specific questions.
