We invite you to explore and experience the many ways in which IVC promotes individual development and improves the overall quality of life in southern California.
In 2006, we are beginning the construction of the Irvine Valley College Performing Arts Center, a $32 million state-of-the-art teaching and performance facility for instrumental, voice, and dramatic arts.
It will be a significant contribution to the community and is destined to become a focal point for our campus and the city of Irvine when it’s completed in 2007.
And, IVC has a reputation for excellence in education. According to the California State Chancellor’s Office, our college has one of the highest transfer rates to the University of California among Orange County’s four community college districts. Our campus comprises a vibrant, multicultural community whose doors are open to anyone in search of a brighter future. Now is the time to take advantage of the rich combination of programs and services we offer. Earn a degree, upgrade your technical skills, or just enjoy lectures, workshops and programs for your own enrichment — the possibilities are unlimited. Our supportive faculty and staff stand ready to help you reach your academic and personal goals. Your educational future begins at IVC. Whatever you want to achieve, we are dedicated to helping you get there.
