Irvine Valley College is your ticket to a UC diploma

by TOMOYA SHIMURA

If you’d like to earn a University of California diploma, there are few better places to start than Irvine Valley College.

IVC transfers more students to UC Irvine than any other community college. And it leads all OC community colleges in transfers to UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, UC Davis and UC Riverside.

Not only that, it’s launched a program called Irvine Valley Promise, offering free tuition for first-time, full-time IVC students (until program capacity is reached). Those who qualify also receive textbook vouchers and dedicated counseling to help them succeed.

Founded in 1985, IVC offers two-year associate degrees in over 80 majors ranging from accounting and philosophy to acting and laser technology.

Sometimes you can prepare yourself for a high-demand, high-paying job in a year or less.

And you can do so at a fraction of the cost of attending a four-year university; annual tuition and fees cost around $1,100.
