Tech Prep Articulation

Irvine Valley College maintains facultyapproved formal course and program articulation agreements with the Irvine Unified School District, Tustin Unified School District, Saddleback Valley Unified School District, and Coastline Regional Occupational Program (ROP). Tech Prep articulation agreements permit students to qualify for college credit on a credit-by-exam basis for selected high school or Regional Occupational Program (ROP) coursework completed with a grade of “B” or better, upon approval by the respective IVC instructor. Approved credit will be granted a grade of “P” (“Pass”). Students may petition the Irvine Valley College Office of Admissions and Records to receive college credit after completing at least three units of coursework in residence at IVC with a minimum GPA of 2.0. The three units of residency must be fulfilled within five years from the date the student graduated from high school in order to receive credit for articulated courses. Students should consult an IVC counselor for information about articulation and transfer agreements, including Tech Prep, Advanced Placement, the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, and the California State University General Education List.
