  1. Hi. My name is Aaron Mandel. I am enrolled for fall. I have completed Calculus at Sierra College with an A. The grade will come with my transcript. Is there anything else I need to do?

  2. Aaron,

    If your Calculus course at Sierra is one of the ones listed in ASSIST (30 or 31 are the first two in the Sierra Calc sequence, I think), sending your transcript should do the job. If your course isn’t in ASSIST, you’ll need to provide some more information. Apologies for the slow response time. Welcome to UCSC!

    Best wishes,
    Debra Lewis
