Services include campus tours; high school visits; presentations to students, parents, and commu­nity groups on admissions procedures, academic programs and student services; attending college fairs; and participating in community events such as Preview Day, Laser Week, Fast Friday and the Freshman Advantage Program for high school seniors.

The Emeritus Institute provides courses of interest and value to older adults, community members and lifelong learners at convenient times and locations, both at the main IVC campus and at off-campus sites. These sites are collaborative connections with cities such as Irvine, Tustin, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach. Courses include a broad range of offerings from health/wellness to personal enrichment, finance, art, and music, with new offerings being developed in response to community needs. Emeritus courses do not count toward degree or certificate requirements, nor do they carry transfer credit to colleges or universities. Courses are described in this catalog, and current offerings scheduled throughout the calendar year may be viewed online at academics.ivc.edu/emeritus or at www.123getsmart.com.

It provides a robust annual summer College4Kids program at the main IVC campus. Community Education courses are short-term, focused, customized, can be individualized and contracted, may feature college discipline experts and be offered at the college, online or hybrid.

Student Ambassador Program

Room A 109 • 949-451-5214

IVC launched its first year-long Student Ambassador Program in 2014/15. The goals of the program are to build a structured framework in which students can become familiar with the college, gain a working knowledge of the institution, and be visible in and useful to the college community. Ambassadors are required to attend a 2-day training program through which they will be introduced to key stakeholders and learn about the operation of the institution. The IVC Student Ambassadors have become the face of the college and truly create a sense of community. The application process is open in March and April of each year. Students interested in participating in the program should contact the Office of the Vice President for Student Services.
