At Irvine Valley College (IVC), our vision is to create a community that promotes inquiry, intellectual curiosity, personal growth and a life-long appreciation for the power of learning.

IVC is one of two colleges in the South Orange County Community College District which also includes Saddleback College. You may only apply to one college. So, apply for admission to the college where you wish to receive support services such as financial aid and counseling, and where you plan to complete your educational goal. You will be required to complete all the admission steps at the college where you submit your admission application. If you would like to apply to Saddleback College, please visit Saddleback College Admissions for more information.
