Advancing Student Success
“IVC OFFERS STUDENTS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE FOR OUTSTANDING UNDERGRADUATE PREPARATION. BY COMPLETING THEIR FIRST 60 UNITS OF LOWER-DIVISION GENERAL EDUCATION AND MAJOR COURSEWORK AT IVC AND THEN TRANSFERRING TO COMPLETE THEIR UPPER-DIVISION WORK AT A UC OR CSU CAMPUS OR PRIVATE/INDEPENDENT COLLEGE, STUDENTS CAN SAVE THOUSANDS OF
DOLLARS IN TUITION AND FEES.”
—Richard H. Morley, Foundation Executive Director, Irvine Valley College
“WE OFFER A SMALL-COLLEGE ATMOSPHERE WITH OUTSTANDING STUDENT SERVICES AND QUALITY INSTRUCTION. OUR MISSION
IS TO PROVIDE AN INCREASINGLY RELEVANT CURRICULUM AND THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY TO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS FOR
THE FUTURE.”
—Glenn R. Roquemore, PhD, President, Irvine Valley College
James Bailey
James Bailey was the first athlete to represent the Irvine Valley College graduating class as a student commencement speaker in 2013. A proud husband and father of four, James returned to Irvine Valley after being away for a decade, during which time he faced health and financial trials. His return also marked a comeback to the Lasers basketball program, where he led Irvine Valley to a second-round appearance in the state championships. James says he plans to “attend CSU Dominguez Hills or Northwestern California University School of Law to receive my bachelor’s degree in law, as well as go for a juris doctor. I want to make a difference through law and politics, while promoting peace and hope through Christianity.”
