COVID-19 Updates from the President

April 19, 2022

Dear Students:

Please read this important update about summer and fall classes. As we have done throughout the pandemic, we continue to prioritize health and safety without sacrificing academic quality and access.

March 11, 2022

Dear Student:

As we approach spring break, we wanted to share with you that effective Monday, April 11, 2022, South Orange County Community College District will no longer require that you wear a mask indoors at Irvine Valley College (IVC), Saddleback College (SC) and ATEP. All other safety protocols remain in place, including vaccine requirements and testing for some student groups and those with approved exemptions for vaccination.

Dear Students:

Irvine Valley College (IVC) will be resuming in-person classes and services beginning February 23, 2022. At the start of the spring semester, IVC made the decision to delay the return of most in-person and hybrid courses due to the increasing spread of the Omicron variant in Orange County. Now, with COVID-19 numbers significantly improving in our region and throughout the state, we believe we can safely implement a full return to campus.

January 28, 2022

Dear Students:

As we continue to monitor the current wave of the Omicron variant in our community, Irvine Valley College has determined to delay a full return of Spring semester in-person/hybrid classes until Wednesday, February 23, 2022. Classes will continue to meet online until then. Please continue to communicate with your instructor regarding any class updates.

January 3, 2022

Dear IVC Student,

We hope you’ve enjoyed the holiday break and look forward to welcoming you this spring semester. Classes begin on January 18.  

Please take note of recent changes to our class schedule due to the high transmission of the Omicron and Delta variants of COVID-19 in Orange County. Your safety is our top priority, and it is critical that we take measures to reduce the risk of exposure to our students, faculty, and staff.
