The term "special admissions" applies to students who are currently enrolled in grades K-12. These students may enroll in IVC courses on a space available basis. As required by state law, K-12 students will receive a later priority registration time to not displace regularly admitted students.
New Student Preparation

Choosing Your Dual Enrollment Program
We strongly recommend you meet with your school counselor to discuss which program will be the right fit for you.
- Education Code places strict enrollment restrictions. Students may enroll for a maximum of 11 units and limits enrollment in physical education courses. Consequently, IVC currently prohibits enrollment in physical education activity courses.
- IVC assumes no responsibility for the supervision of minor students outside of the classroom setting. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are appropriately supervised before class, after class, and if or when a class is canceled or dismissed early.
- Attendance is required, but not monitored as it is in secondary school systems. IVC will not call a parent or guardian if a student is absent, nor will we verify attendance. Students are expected to meet all deadlines, classes must be dropped within the deadlines, grade options etc. It is the student's responsibility to know these deadlines. Deadlines are indicated in the class schedule.
