Try

restart:

S:=t->c*exp(-a*t)+18:

sys:={S(2)=55,S(8)=36}:

sol:=solve(sys):

evalf(sol)

{a = 0.1200910262, c = 47.04478235}

Try :solve(sys); [allvalues(%)];

The following shows what you actually ask for:

Sys:=(expand(sys));

subs(exp(a) = sqrt(t), Sys); solve(%);

Or even better:

subs(exp(a) = sqrt(t), Sys); eliminate(%, c);

Then just solve exp(a) = sqrt(t) for a.

Likewise evaluate to numerical values.

So there are 3 solutions

restart:S:=t->c*exp(-a*t)+18;

S := t -> c*exp(-a*t)+18;

sys:={S(2)=55,S(8)=36};

sys := {c*exp(-8*a)+18 = 36., c*exp(-2*a)+18 = 55.};
S := t -> c*exp(-a*t)+18;

sys:={S(2)=55,S(8)=36};

solve(sys);

restart;

S:=t->c*exp(-a*t)+18:

sys:={S(2)=55,S(8)=36}:

1/3 2/3

24642 24642

sol := {a = -1/2 ln(--------), c = --------}

37 18

evalf(%);

{a = 0.1200910257, c = 47.04478236}

Getting the three roots (of which two are nonreal, ie. complex) is similar,

solve(sys, explicit);
