Dear Colleagues,

We encourage you to discover the first phase of a newly modernized and re-envisioned ASSIST public website. Included in this initial release:

  • Updated, intuitive design
  • Easily searchable database


New ASSIST Public Site

Development Background
The updated platform represents a large leap forward to modernize the ASSIST system and allow for iterative updates moving forward. The first release phase includes transferability lists and articulation agreements as available. Subsequent phases of the system will include additional public website functionality as well as new features such as Compare Courses by Major and Web Services. 

Tutorials
ASSIST public website tutorials are now available on the ASSIST Resource Center. We encourage you to access these resources and embed or link the tutorials to your own websites for easy student access. 

Communications Toolkit
ASSIST has also developed a communications toolkit to help educate students about the new system. The toolkit contains an informational video, flyer, postcard, poster, and sample digital communications about ASSIST. These materials were developed based on your feedback in a stakeholder survey in spring of 2018; thank you to all those who participated. 

Additional Information
Important details regarding the release and available features are located on the ASSIST public website FAQ page. This help page will be updated often to reflect the most recent information available and answers to other common questions received. You can additionally access the FAQ page via the “Frequent Questions” link on the public website home page.

We appreciate the patience and feedback from our colleagues as we have worked to develop an advanced and evolving platform to meet the needs of our users. If you have any questions, you can contact us at help@assist.org.
