Student Success and Support Program (SSSP)

The Student Success and Support Program (SSSP), also known as Matriculation, provides services designed to promote the student's efforts toward completing their educational goals. Students are expected to complete key processes upon successfully achieving specific milestones. These services are a partnership between the student and IVC. Students are expected to identify an education and career goal, engage in courses and complete course requirements, and maintain progress toward successfully achieving their educational goal.

The Student Success and Support Program will help students to evaluate their academic readiness, determine their academic goals, and identify campus resources. Students are required to complete all of the following components of the Student Success and Support Program:

1. Assessment

Specific levels of preparation are required in order to enroll in English, reading, mathematics, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. During the assessment session, students will be given tests in writing and mathematics in order to determine their current skill level in these areas. 

2. Advisement

  1. First Semester Academic Plan - Students will formulate their initial academic plan based on the results from the assessment. This plan will be for 1-2 semesters, and will be created using MAP (My Academic Plan) in the student's MySite account. Advisement sessions are offered online or in person.
  2. Comprehensive My Academic Plan (MAP) - Upon completion of 15 degree applicable units or before enrolling in the 4th semester, students will be required to complete a comprehensive academic plan. A comprehensive academic plan is a semester by semester plan for completing the student's academic goal. Failure to complete a comprehensive plan will result in a hold being placed on the student's enrollment.

3. Orientation

Orientation provides an overview of important policies, procedures and services at IVC. Students are directed to complete orientation after they have completed assessment and advisement. Orientation sessions are offered online or in person. Students can access orientation through their MySite account from any computer with Internet access. 


Students will be exempt from matriculation if they are attending IVC for one of the following reasons:

  • Legally mandated training or significant change in industry of licensure
  • Personal development
  • 4-year university/college student enrolling to meet bachelor degree requirements
  • Concurrently enrolled as a K-12 Special Admit
  • Students who have completed an associate degree or higher 

New students who are required to complete all matriculation steps will be eligible for a Level 1: Priority registration time.

Students who are exempt from completing the matriculation steps will receive a Level 3: Low Priority registration time (see Registration Times ).
