The ASSIST acronym stands for:
Articulation System Stimulating Inter-institutional Student Transfer.
ASSIST is a computerized student-transfer information system that can be accessed online. It displays reports of how course credits earned at one California community college are transferable or articulated to a California State University or University of California campuses. 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.
