K - 12 Special Admission Students

KidThe 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 low priority registration time so as to not displace regularly admitted students.

Follow these 6 easy steps to complete your enrollment.

Step 1

Apply for admission online (unless you are currently enrolled).  Students who are under the age of 14 must complete a paper application (available at Admissions & Records, Student Services Center, 110).

  • Summer & Fall Applications accepted beginning February 1.
  • Spring Applications accepted beginning August 1
step 2

The Matriculation process (Orientation and Advisement) is deferred for K-12 students. However, if you plan to enroll for a course which requires a prerequisite, you must demonstrate satisfactory completion of the prerequisite or take the appropriate assessment. For further information go the Matriculation & Assessment website.
