In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know (SRTK) and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of the South Orange County Community College District and Irvine Valley College to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students.

Beginning in Fall 2009, a cohort of all certificate, degree, and transfer seeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed above. Based upon the cohort defined above, a completer is a student who attained a certificate or degree or became transfer prepared during a three-year period, from Fall 2009 to Spring 2012. Students who have completed 60 transfer- able units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered transfer-prepared. Students who transferred to another post-secondary institution, prior to attaining a degree, certificate, or becoming transfer-prepared during a five-semester period, from Spring 2010 to Spring 2012, are transfer students. Information about Student Right-to- Know rates for Irvine Valley College and how they should be interpreted can be found at the California Community Colleges Student-Right-to-Know Information Clearinghouse website:

NOTE: SRTK rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at Irvine Valley College, nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three- year tracking period. The rates do not describe other important features about the college and its students. Additionally, as a part of the Transfer Velocity Project, the California Community College Chancellor's Office tracks first-time college students who demonstrate behavioral intent to transfer by completing a minimum of 12 units and attempting either a transfer level math or English course within a six-year time frame. Of the latest cohort of transfer-oriented students at IVC, 60% transferred to a four-year institution within the six-year time frame. This is the number one transfer rate for such students in Orange County and the second highest in the California Community College system.
