 Transfer
Students who have selected the particular four-year college to which they eventually wish to transfer should use the college catalog of that institution as the principle guide for determining the first two years of their program.

ASSIST is a computerized student-transfer information system that can be accessed over the World Wide Web. It displays reports of how course credits earned at one California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s colleges and universities and therefore provides the most accurate and up-to-date information available about student transfer in California.
ASSIST is available at www.assist.org.
