Community College Applications Now Open!
As of December 1 all California Community College applications are now open!  That includes the Freshman Advantage Program at Irvine Valley College. The Freshman Advantage program is designed for high school seniors coming to Irvine Valley College in the Fall of 2019. This program offers high school seniors the opportunity to apply early, receive a Freshman Advantage Early Registration time, and enroll in their classes  before  most currently enrolled IVC students! IVC cannot emphasize enough the importance of this program for high school seniors. A better registration appointment for  Fall 2019 AND Spring 2020  will provide high school students with a strong start. Students are strongly encouraged to apply early!  See below for more information on who to contact at Irvine Valley College for more information.

Tip of The Week 
Remember to keep this Advent season holy! What an exciting time as we prepare for the celebration of Jesus' birth! Don't get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season. Stop and reflect on the Reason for the season.
