I accidentally opened an assembly that was created using the 2018 version in a 2019 version computer on campus. Now I cannot open the assembly in the 2018 version anymore? Is there any way I can convert back to the 2018 version?
Nope, you can perhaps find a back-up inside your Windows if you're lucky, but that's about it as far as I'm aware.

Parasolid.....go with Parasolid. Not STP if you can help it.
Less actual translation that way...
...uhmm,.. the best (no translation needed) is our native 3D kernel,.. Parasolid

If you just opened it, and then closed it without saving, you should still be able to open it with the same version that it was last saved with. If you saved it with SW2019 then there's no way to undo that with that particular file, but, as Alex said, hopefully you have a backup on the computer that has SW2018.
Go to Tools > Options > System Options > Backup/Recovery. Hopefully there's a file location there where backups have been saved automatically.
Either that, or depending on the computer, Windows could do back-ups every X hours. This can be useful if you've modified something accidentally.
..personally... save yourself some grief and explain this to your teacher/aid and move forward with using 2019.
Schools/students now have access to 2020
