12 October Development Updates for the New ASSIST System October 12, 2018By Ryan Novero Development News development, news, updates 0 We would like to update you on the development status of the new ASSIST, which will provide a modernized transfer and articulation system for California’s public colleges and universities. Over the summer, progress continued toward achieving this goal, with key accomplishments and targets as outlined below: Legacy ASSIST links to updates: As many are aware, the legacy ASSIST search page now includes links to both UC and CSU campus-level major articulation information for 2017-18 and 2018-19. Course Transferability Tool website: By December 2018, the above-referenced links and accompanying messaging will be updated to redirect users to a temporary website that also includes 2017-18 course transferability lists. New ASSIST launch date: After an extensive review of remaining critical development tasks, a revised launch date of the new ASSIST is scheduled for May 2019. Over 5,800 estimated development hours remain between now and the anticipated deployment. To ensure the technical team is well positioned to complete the most critical development tasks, the ASSIST Executive Sponsors and EMOC have secured additional project funding to bring two more developers to existing vendor staffing as of October 1. Expectations and Timeline: New ASSIST, when deployed in May 2019, will reflect completion of core functionality: transferability lists, articulation agreements, data extracts, and data reports. Subsequent phases of development will involve iterative releases of additional functionality and system enhancements. A high-level timeline is as follows: We continue to bear in mind that delays in the release of the new ASSIST system have had a significant impact on all users. We also want to acknowledge that the public launch can only happen when the system is truly ready. We are committed to delivering a quality application that will support the missions of our colleges and universities. Please direct any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
