ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) 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.

Delay in posting 2017-18 Articulation Agreements
Currently, the ASSIST website displays articulation data up through 2016-17. Articulation agreements (CSU/UC Transferable Course Lists, Major Agreements, Department Agreements, CSU GE-Breadth Transferable Course Lists, and IGETC Transferable Course Lists) for 2017-18 are not yet available on ASSIST. This delay is due to technical problems encountered just prior to the release of the new ASSIST Next Generation system, originally scheduled for deployment in summer 2017. The tentative release date of the new ASSIST system is May 2019.
The ASSIST Coordination Site Team is working to resolve this issue and plan to provide 2017-18 articulation agreements as PDF documents on ASSIST. The timeline for this action remains unknown at this time.
Recommendations for students:
- Check www.assist.org regularly for updates.
- Check this page for periodic updates.
During this interim period, for planning purposes, refer to the Foothill College 2017-18 Course Report to view new, revised and deleted courses.
Students who plan to submit an application to the CSU or UC, effective with the Fall 2018 admissions cycle, are advised to follow the guidelines below when entering "In Progress" and "Planned" courses into the Cal State Apply and/or the UC Application systems.
CSU Application: Reporting In-Progress/Planned Foothill College Courses
Courses should be entered into Cal State Apply as they will appear on the transcript, so applicants should refer to the Foohill
College 2017-18 Course Report when entering "In Progress/Planned" courses. If you are not able to select a course within the system because it is
a new Foothill course, you must manually enter it. If a course has been revised (i.e.
department, title, unit value), select the course from the system and make the necessary
change(s) to reflect the 2017-18 course information.
UC Application: Reporting In-Progress/Planned Foothill College Courses
All 2017-18 UC transferable courses are correctly showing in the system which means only revisions to UC transferable courses should be addressed. If you are entering in a course that has been revised, select the course appearing on the system then ADD A NOTE in the “additional academic comments” section explaining that the course prefix, title, and/or unit value has changed. (Example: SPCH has changed to COMM; or POLI 1 is 5 units)
