For Articulation Officers (AOs) and Data Managing ASSIST Users

User-specific communication will continue to be delivered via the ASSIST AO listservs, while general updates will be provided here.

  • New User Accounts – Contact ASSIST staff to request additional user accounts for your campus. Please indicate the new user’s name, e-mail address, and the type of account needed. AOs can request either of the account types, while brand new AO accounts require administrator approval in the absence of an existing AO.

    • UC/CSU/CCC AO – data management roles with access to update curriculum, articulation, workflow, and view reports (administrator or AO approval required).

    • UC/CSU/CCC Faculty/Staff – read-only roles with access to view institution-specific Reports Area.

  • Multiple Users from the Same Institution - When working in the curriculum and articulation management areas of the system, please be sure that two individuals from the same institution are not working in the exact same area at the same time. This is particularly important when working in articulation in terms of a single receiving institution and sending institution.

  • Updated Resources – in addition to the four new tutorials added to the Tutorials page last month, the UC/CSU-AO user guide was revised to include additional information based on common questions received from users as well as to showcase system functionality improvements as the result of ongoing development.

  • Development work – The Fairway development team has been progressing on logged tickets related to major-specific articulation, course series functionality, agreement previews, and publication.

  • UC/CSU-AO Webinar Series – ASSIST hosted two weekly mini-training webinars (Major Specific Articulation; Course Series Management; Articulation Gear Menu) to provide focused guidance on the various features 4 year AOs need to use to complete preparing articulation agreements. These webinars were recorded and sent out to UC/CSU-AOs via e-mail.
