Welcome to IVC!

Irvine Valley College (IVC) combines a small-college environment with more than 60 acres of modern facilities and equipment; dedicated staff; and an excellent faculty who combine knowledge and experience with a sincere commitment to learning. After its creation as a satellite campus in 1979, IVC became an independent institution in 1985, and has seen its transfer rates and campus community flourish.
