Assist (www.assist.org)

Project ASSIST (Articulation System Stimulating Interinstitutional Student Transfer) is a Web-based articulation and transfer planning system that provides a wide variety of information about California’s public institutions of higher education. ASSIST addresses student concerns about transferring between institutions by providing specific information that indicates which PCC courses are transferable and how they can be applied at any number of CSU and UC campuses. In many instances, ASSIST also offers current major-specific information which may be helpful to students planning lower-division coursework for transfer into specific majors at a CSU or UC campus. ASSIST also provides access to system-wide general education patterns such as the IGETC (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum) and the CSU General Education Course List, as well as general education patterns for selected CSU and UC campuses. Because Assist.org is considered the official repository of articulation information, it may be considered the primary source of articulation information; all other sources should be consistent with the information on Assist.

The Internet address for the ASSIST website is www.assist.org. Students may access this website in the PCC Transfer Center, or they may retrieve ASSIST information by meeting with a counselor.
