ASSIST

ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California's public colleges and universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California.

The general catalog is the ultimate guide, covering admission requirements, graduation requirements and everything in between.

Eligibility in the Local Context (ELC)

ELC (Eligibility in the Local Context) is one way for California freshmen to qualify for admission to UC. Under ELC, the top 9 percent of students in each participating California high school class are designated ELC based on coursework entered into the UC application and the 9 percent benchmark GPA UC has established for the school.

The Local Path page provides information for students and parents about how ELC is determined. The ELC website provides high schools with information about school eligibility, parent authorization, the programs calendar and data submission.
