COVID-19 Updates from IVC

November 18, 2020

Dear Students,

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well. As we approach the holiday season and finals, we wanted to commend you for your dedication to your academic success during these challenging times. 

The holiday season is often a time for travel, looking forward to gatherings with family and friends, or thinking about holiday celebrations. Unfortunately, the coming days are now occurring in the midst of a pandemic.

Dear Student:

Irvine Valley College (IVC) recognizes that as a student, you are making great efforts to continue your education in the face of uncertainty and challenges. Students and colleges have all made admirable efforts to meet the challenges posed by the statewide COVID-19 pandemic emergency. However, some students may still find it too challenging to complete their Fall 2020 courses, given their individual situations. We at IVC understand this and want you to know that if you find yourself in this situation, you have options.

Dear Students:

As we are now in week six of the fall semester, I hope this communication finds you progressing in your classes. Today, I want to take this opportunity to share with you that Irvine Valley College’s Spring 2021 semester (January 19 – May 26, 2021) will take place mostly online. If public health conditions permit, it is possible a small number of hands-on labs and activity classes could return to campus. However, it is our intention for IVC’s spring schedule of classes to be primarily online.

Dear Students,

We want to share with you important information regarding international students that you may have seen in recent news reports. This afternoon, the Trump administration rescinded new proposed rules that would have prohibited international students from attending colleges in the United States if only online courses were being offered.

Dear Student:

In these stressful times, I know it may seem hard to keep track of what is opening and what is closing. That is why I wanted to share with you some important updates made during Governor Newsom’s news conference today regarding modifications for Orange County and our neighbors.
