4 Welcome to Irvine Valley College On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration at Irvine Valley College, welcome! Each semester, we are excited to greet students from our neighboring communities and over 40 foreign countries. As the academic year begins, we have more than 15,000 students attending IVC. Some are here to pursue a degree or certificate, some to prepare for transfer, and some just to explore their options. Here are some fast facts to consider: IVC offers over 60 associate degree majors and over 40 career and technical certificate programs. IVC is ranked #1 in Orange County and #3 among all California community colleges for its transfer rates. Last year, IVC students transferred to some of the finest public universities in the state, including UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, and CSU Fullerton, and numerous private institutions, including Columbia, USC, University of Redlands, and Chapman. We have a strong and active Honors Program and over 20 honors classes each semester for academically talented and motivated students. Our award-winning chapters of the honor societies Phi Theta Kappa and Psi Beta, and our award-winning Speech and Debate, Model United Nations, and Administration of Justice teams make us proud. Our 13 outstanding men s and women s athletic teams include state champions most recently the women s golf team, men s volleyball team and women s badminton team. IVC proudly welcomes veterans. As of spring 2011, 400 full-time veterans were enrolled as IVC students. Over 400 high school students take part in IVC s Early College Program. They will receive both high school and college credit for completing approved CSU- and UC-transferable courses at IVC. Whatever your own individual goal may be, I know that you will find wonderful faculty and staff dedicated to your development and success. I wish you the very best in your every endeavor. Greetings, fellow students. My name is Natasha Nguyen and it is a pleasure for me to represent you as the president of the Associated Students of Irvine Valley College (ASIVC) for the academic year. The purpose of ASIVC is to serve as the main governing body for the students. The constitution states that We, the students of Irvine Valley College, do hereby establish this Constitution and Bylaws to encourage student responsibility and self-government. As president of ASIVC, my hope is that everyone makes the most out of their time at IVC by joining a student organization, getting involved in campus activities, working for a department, stopping by our student lounge for pool or other games, participating in sports or the arts, or becoming part of the competitive Speech and Debate Team. As a member of ASIVC, you will be surrounded by students seeking the improvement of every aspect of Irvine Valley College. ASIVC members work toward the enhancement of our college by sharing current students needs as well as planning future ideas that might affect the campus life experience of newcomers. While attending IVC dream big and share your goals with friends and faculty members. Make use of all the resources that IVC has available for you. Best of luck and have an amazing year! Glenn R. Roquemore, PhD President, Irvine Valley College Natasha Nguyen President, Associated Students of Irvine Valley College 2 irvine valley college student handbook

5 In the Beginning: North Campus 1976: The history of Irvine Valley College can be traced to 1976, when a select citizen s advisory committee determined that another campus was needed to serve the north region of the 376-square-mile Saddleback Community College District. Today, the district is known as the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD). 1977: In 1977, land for the new site was purchased from the Irvine Company, including 20 acres located at the corner of Jeffrey Road and Irvine Center Drive. Groundbreaking for the satellite campus of Saddleback College was held on November 1 of that year. A Brief History of the College 1989: The new Computer Science Building opened. 1991: The 40,700-square-foot Student Services Center was completed. IVC enrolled nearly 9,000 students in the fall semester, nearly doubling its enrollment since IVC athletic teams joined the Orange Empire Conference. 1992: The new Health and Fitness Center and 18 acres of playing fields were completed in 1992, and the college added seven new intercollegiate sports. 1993: IVC s accreditation was reaffirmed.

7 Campus Irvine Valley College combines a small college environment with modern facilities and equipment, dedicated staff, and an excellent faculty who combine knowledge and experience with a sincere commitment to student learning. Enrolling Is Easy Just fill out an application online. Log on to the IVC website, select Admissions, and then follow the links. Or complete an application at a computer in the Student Services Center. Most students take an assessment exam, complete an online orientation and advisement before registering for classes. Classes Fit Your Schedule A Great Choice, Irvine Valley College IVC offers classes during the day and evening, for eight weeks or full semesters, on campus, online or in a hybrid mode (a mix of online and on-campus classes) for your convenience. Student Life IVC student government supports over 30 student clubs and co-curricular programs, including award-winning Model United Nations, Speech and Debate, and Administration of Justice teams. Throughout the year there are art exhibits, concerts, dance and theatre performances, and special events. The 13 IVC athletic teams include state and national champions in men s and women s sports. Honors Program and Honor Societies The excellent IVC Honors Program offers approximately 20 honors classes each semester to academically talented and highly motivated students. IVC also has an award-winning chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honors organization for two-year colleges, and an active chapter of Psi Beta, the national honors organization in psychology for community college students. Academic Programs IVC offers two-year associate degrees in over 60 majors in the liberal arts and sciences, business sciences, social sciences, and technologies. You can complete general education and premajor requirements for transfer to four-year colleges. You can also train for a specific job by earning a certificate in one of IVC s 43 career and technical programs. Or you can take courses for your own personal development. The Transfer Advantage It s easier for a community college student to transfer to a University of California or California State University campus than it is for a student applying directly out of high school. The grade point eligibility index is lower, and community college students are given priority for admission. It is also much less expensive to fulfill general education and lower-division major requirements at the community college. Community college students are typically very successful after transfer. Currently, IVC s transfer rate is #1 in Orange County and #3 among all California community colleges. Another bonus is that IVC has transfer agreements and/ or transfer admission guarantees (TAGs) with UC and CSU campuses. The IVC Transfer Center also hosts visits from college representatives throughout the year. Typically, over 50 fouryear universities participate in the annual IVC Transfer Fair. We Help You Succeed IVC offers extensive support services to help you succeed. These include counseling on choosing a major and selecting classes; career counseling; transfer assistance; help with basic English and math skills; free tutoring; childcare; assistance with veterans and international student issues; health care; and services for low-income students and students with a disability. student handbook irvine valley college 5

8 S T U D E N T P R O F I L E Breeanna Bergeron- Matsumoto High School: Northwood, Irvine Major: Geography/ Environmental Studies Transfer Plan: UCLA Long-term Goal: My long-term educational goal is to get a PhD in geography and use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to help aid in environmental conservation issues and natural disaster planning. S T U D E N T P R O F I L E KEVIN OTIS High School: Trabuco Hills Major: Psychology Transfer Plan: UC Berkeley Long-term Goal: My long-term educational goal is to achieve a PhD in a field in which I can conduct research. IVC s Greatest Strength: IVC has many strengths. One of which I consistently witnessed was the willingness of professors and counselors to help students achieve their goals. IVC s Greatest Strength: IVC s greatest strength is the dedicated teachers who help encourage and inspire students to become passionate and engaged in and outside of the classroom. Not only do the professors help you understand topics, materials, and concepts, but they illuminate the importance and value of each subject. Campus Involvement: I am a member of the Honors Program on campus and participated in the Speech Forensics department for one semester. S T U D E N T P R O F I L E Campus Involvement: I am president of the Geography Club, vice president of the BEES Garden, member of Phi Theta Kappa, and also a member of the Honors Program. natalia Lisek High School: Aliso Niguel Major: Biology Transfer Plan: UC Davis Long-term Goal: After I transfer to UCD, my goal is to be admitted into their school of Veterinary Medicine so I can become a veterinarian. IVC s Greatest Strength: IVC s greatest strengths are the friendly counselors, the small campus and the involved teachers. S T U D E N T P R O F I L E Tim Rantung High School: Loma Linda Academy Major: Piano Performance Transfer Plan: UCLA, a conservatory in New York City or possibly Europe. Basically wherever I get in! Long-term Goal: After completing a doctorate in music, I hope to work up to teaching at a university while maintaining an active performance career in solo and collaborative music. IVC s Greatest Strength: A strength of the Music Department at IVC is its comprehensive education. Not only do you learn about your instrument, you also actively learn how other instruments work and how to critically comment on certain aspects of those instruments. Because of its small size, performance opportunity is also very accessible, and as a performer, that experience is a major building block to your development. 6 irvine valley college student handbook

11 Submit Official Transcripts Send official transcripts from previous colleges and universities you have attended to IVC. You will need to submit official transcripts to show that you have completed a course prerequisite or to request an exemption from matriculation. All official transcripts should be sent to: Irvine Valley College Office of Admissions and Records 5500 Irvine Center Drive Irvine, CA Know Your Residency Classification For purposes of admission and/or tuition, students are classified as either California residents or nonresidents. Students who are classified as nonresidents will be required to pay additional tuition and fees. Tips to Starting Off Right EXEMPTIONS FROM NONRESIDENT TUITION: The California Education Code and provisions in state law allow certain nonresidents the opportunity to pay in-state fees. Eligibility criteria are noted below. Students who believe they are eligible for an exemption based on any one of the following criteria should consult the Office of Admissions and Records when they apply: 1. Students who are members of the armed forces of the United States who are stationed in this state on active duty, except those assigned to California for educational purposes. 2. Spouses and dependents (natural or adopted children or stepchildren) of active members of the armed forces. 3. Parents who are federal civil service employees and have moved to California as a result of a military realignment action that involves the relocation of at least 100 employees. This exemption also applies to the natural or adopted children or stepchildren of such employees. 4. Students who have completed at least three years of high school and graduated from a California high school. Students must fill out and submit the AB 540 Affidavit for Exemption for consideration. WHO QUALIFIES AS A RESIDENT? Residency regulations are complex. If you have established legal residence within California for at least one year and one day before the semester in which you wish to attend college begins and can demonstrate intent to remain a California resident, you may qualify to be classified as a resident. Nonresident students who are currently attending Irvine Valley College are considered continuing students and are expected to provide evidence of financial independence in addition to other documents showing their intent to be a California resident. It is your responsibility to provide evidence to substantiate your claim for residency. For additional residency information, you may refer to the IVC website (Admissions and Residency sections) or contact the Office of Admissions and Records. CHANGING RESIDENT STATUS It is up to the student to initiate the reclassification to resident status (consult the Office of Admissions and Records). Reclassification forms and directions are available on the IVC website under the Admissions section. Evidence from the list of documents provided on the residency questionnaire confirming your presence and your intent to remain in California may be submitted to the Office of Admissions, along with the residency questionnaire. Remember, your documents must be one year and one day old before the semester begins. The burden of proof lies with you. S T U D E N T P R O F I L E BANI OBEROI High School: Trabuco Hills Major: Psychology Transfer Plan: UCI or UC Santa Cruz Long-term Goal: I would like to be a community college counselor. IVC s Greatest Strength: That it allows students to grow exponentially and has awesome professors to help you along the way.

12 Matriculation Explained The matriculation process at Irvine Valley College provides students with information about their skills and abilities, informs them about support services, and allows them to plan their educational program in consultation with counselors. The primary goal of this process is to assist students in identifying and achieving their educational objectives. Assessment of Basic Skills Specific levels of preparation are required in order to enroll in English, reading, mathematics, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Most new students and some continuing students should be assessed in these areas. Students are notified when they apply whether or not they should complete assessment. English and Mathematics (Native Assessments) All native assessment sessions are available on a walkin, first-come, firstserved basis. During the assessment session, students will be given tests in writing and mathematics in order to determine their current skill level in these areas. Assessment sessions usually last about 2 hours and 15 minutes, and there is no cost for them. Students MUST have their Irvine Valley College Student ID number and a picture identification NO EXCEPTIONS! Students cannot study for the assessments in advance and should not worry about doing so. Students cannot fail the assessments. The results are used for placement purposes only. ESL (Non-native Assessment) Non-native English speakers attending IVC for the first time should take the ESL assessment before enrolling in classes. A specially designed diagnostic test and writing sample are used to determine the reading/writing and listening/speaking skills of ESL students. After completing the assessment, students will receive class placement recommendations. All students are urged to follow their recommendations. Assessments are offered on scheduled dates on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointment is necessary. Follow the links from to find assessment days and times. Students must arrive on time NO LATE ARRIVALS! Students should allow approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes for testing. Call 949/ if you have questions. Orientation All first-time college freshmen must complete an online orientation before registering for classes. Students are directed to complete the orientation after they have applied and received their student ID. The orientation is composed of six segments: Programs and Majors Your First Steps Student Services Academic Planning Campus Life Student Conduct and Safety Students can access the orientation through their MySite account from any computer with Internet access. Advisement During advisement students are directed to view the results from their assessment session and their recommended class placements. Based on their results, students formulate an educational plan to ensure they begin their studies in an orderly manner and with the expectation of success. Students can access online advisement and MAP (My Academic Plan), a step-by-step guide to establishing a plan, through their MySite account from any computer with Internet access. Developing an Academic Plan After completing advisement, you are encouraged to consult a counselor for assistance in formulating and revising your educational plan. Counselors can help you identify the courses you should take based on your goals, and the IVC services that are available to support you. Your IVC experience will be more rewarding once you have determined your educational goal. For some students, this may be completing the courses necessary to transfer to a four-year school. For others, it may be gaining immediately marketable skills and entering the workforce. Some students may need time to explore their options before deciding on their long-term plans and goals. Counselors are available to help you through the decisionmaking process. Courses such as Academic Planning (COUN 1) and Career Exploration and Life Planning (COUN 102) may also help you find the direction you are seeking. 10 irvine valley college student handbook

13 Preparing for Enrollment in Courses Irvine Valley College is committed to helping students select appropriate-level courses that will provide them the greatest opportunity for academic success. Some courses at the college will require students to have passed a prior course or to have specific knowledge, skills or experience before they can enroll. Any course that requires successful completion of another course, a minimum test score, an audition, athletic eligibility, or any other qualification for enrollment will show a prerequisite, corequisite, recommended preparation, or limitation listed in its course description in the IVC catalog and in the Details section of the online class schedule. Students are responsible for knowing and meeting the prerequisite, corerequisite, recommended preparation, and/or limitation for any course in which they plan to enroll. Prerequisite When a course has a prerequisite, it means that students must have mastered a certain body of knowledge in order to be successful in the course. Most commonly, such knowledge is measured by successful completion of a prior course. For example, Writing 201 is a prerequisite for Writing 1. In order to have a reasonable chance of succeeding in Writing 1, students must have mastered the skills taught in Writing 201. Successful completion is defined as a grade of A, B, C, or P in the prerequisite course. Grades that are not acceptable are D, F, W, or NP. See the next page for a further explanation of how to verify that you have met the prerequisite. Corequisite When a course has a corequisite, it means that students must enroll in another course concurrently (simultaneously) during the semester. The information presented, or the practice gained, in the corequisite course is considered necessary for students to succeed in the target course. For instance, Music 51, a course in which students receive individual keyboard lessons, has a corequisite of Music 53, a course in which students actually participate in concerts and recitals. Recommended Preparation When a course has a recommended preparation, it means that certain course preparation is advised before students enter the target course. For example, the recommended preparation for Accounting 1A is Math 253 and a working knowledge of spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel. This preparation is considered advantageous, but not essential, to succeed in Accounting 1A. Student Rights and Responsibilities IVC agrees to provide: Admission and registration services. Assessment services. Student orientations to college programs, services and policies. Assistance in selecting courses and defining an educational major and plan. Support services. Quality instruction. Appropriate follow-up and referral services. IVC students agree to: Declare a broad educational goal on initial enrollment. Participate in assessment and orientation and have all prior transcripts sent to IVC. Read the college catalog and other college materials. Meet all course prerequisites, corequisites and limitations on enrollment. Attend the first class session in all classes and regularly attend classes. Properly add and drop all classes. Complete class assignments. Develop an educational plan. Seek support services as needed. Progress toward goals by successfully completing classes. Follow all campus rules and regulations. Limitation on Enrollment When a course has a limitation, it usually means that students have to pass an audition or meet an eligibility requirement in order to enroll. For instance, all intercollegiate athletics courses have a limitation that students must meet the Commission on Athletics eligibility requirements and pass a physical exam prior to intercollegiate competition. Most music and dance performing ensembles and theatre production courses require students to audition before they can enroll. Matriculation Appeals Students have the right to challenge a prerequisite or their participation in the matriculation process. In order to do so, students must fill out a Request to Challenge form. See Requests to Challenge on the next page. student handbook irvine valley college 11

14 How to Demonstrate That You Have Met a Prerequisite If you are enrolling in a course with a prerequisite, you will be required to do one of the following (A E): A. COMPLETE THE PREREQUISITE COURSE AT IVC: Complete the required prerequisite course at Irvine Valley College or the equivalent Saddleback College course with a satisfactory grade that is, a grade of A, B, C, or P. You must see the IVC Counseling Center for the Saddleback College course equivalency list. B. SUBMIT TRANSCRIPTS FROM ANOTHER SCHOOL: Provide grade transcripts from another U.S. accredited college, university or high school, if appropriate. Such transcripts must demonstrate satisfactory completion of the prerequisite course that is, completion of the course with a grade of A, B, C, or P. Please note that IVC does not accept high school transcripts for math or English placements. Other conditions may apply. Students must present transcripts to the Office of Admissions and Records as soon as possible after they apply to Irvine Valley College. Students should then visit the Assessment Center, SC 250, where they will be asked to complete and submit a request for an evaluation form. Students should begin the transcript verification process well before registration begins. Delays in processing transcript evaluations will affect the student s ability to enroll in target courses. Specific information regarding procedures, timelines, and transcript evaluation notification is available in the Assessment Center. C. TAKE THE IVC ASSESSMENT EXAMS: Complete an assessment exam at Irvine Valley College. In some cases, students may clear prerequisites in writing and mathematics through assessment. Note: Students must wait six months before retaking the English or ESL assessment exam, and three months before retaking the math assessment exam. D. SUBMIT EVIDENCE OF PLACEMENT FROM ANOTHER COLLEGE: Provide evidence of completion of an assessment exam administered at another Orange County community college. In some cases, students may clear prerequisites if they have received recommended course placements from another Orange County community college. Students must check with the Assessment Center regarding the acceptability of such assessments and placements. Note: IVC does not accept math placements or English as a Second Language (ESL) placements from other institutions. E. REQUEST AN ALTERNATIVE EVIDENCE REVIEW: If students believe they have the prior knowledge, experience, and/or skills required to succeed in the course from which they have been blocked, they may file a request for an alternative evidence review. Students may obtain a Request for an Alternative Evidence Review in the Assessment Center. Note: Accompanying the form, students must submit alternative evidence that documents their competency to succeed in the course. Such evidence varies by course. See the Assessment Center staff for clarification of the specific evidence required for the course you wish to submit for an alternative evidence review. Students who file a Request for an Alternative Evidence Review will have the matter resolved within five (5) working days. If students file the form during their assigned registration time, IVC will award them eligibility to enroll in the class pending the outcome of their review. If the review is upheld, students who have enrolled in the class will be allowed to remain in the class. If the review is denied, students will be notified that they have been dropped from the class. Requests to Challenge If you want to challenge a prerequisite or your participation in assessment or orientation, you will have to fill out a Request to Challenge form. Forms are available in SC 250. You may file a challenge based on any one of the following grounds: A. You believe that you have cause to challenge your participation in assessment or orientation. B. The prerequisite or corequisite has not been established in accordance with the District s process for establishing prerequisites and corequisites. C. The prerequisite or corequisite is in violation of Title 5, Article D. The prerequisite or corequisite is either unlawfully discriminatory or applied in an unlawfully discriminatory manner. E. You will be subject to undue delay in attaining your educational goal because the prerequisite or corequisite course has not been made reasonably available. Students who file a request to challenge on any ground will have the matter resolved within five (5) working days. Students who file a request to challenge on the basis of Ground B, C, D or E during their assigned registration time will be granted eligibility to enroll in the class pending the outcome of the challenge. If the challenge is upheld, students who have enrolled in the class will be allowed to remain in the class. If the challenge is denied, students will be notified that they have been dropped from the class. 12 irvine valley college student handbook

15 Assessment and Placement in Writing Courses 1. If you have been recommended for assessment at IVC, you should take the college s writing exam during a regularly scheduled assessment session. You will receive a recommended class placement based on the results of your writing exam. If you receive a recommended placement and want to try to improve it, you may complete the Writing Sample. If you receive what you consider to be an inappropriate placement as the result of the Writing Sample, you can request an alternative evidence review. The Assessment Center staff can explain the evidence that you will need for the review. You must wait six months before retaking the writing exam. 2. If you have completed a. An assessment at another Orange County community college and you have the recommended writing placement or b. A college writing course at another accredited U.S. college or university with a grade of C or better and you have transcripts Then you may not have to complete the entire assessment session at Irvine Valley College. However, you will have to present substantiating documents transcripts or placement recommendations from other colleges to the IVC Assessment Center (SC 250) as soon as possible before you register online so that your eligibility can be verified and you can be cleared for registration. Otherwise, you will be blocked from enrolling in writing courses. Prerequisites and corequisites for Writing and reading Classes At Irvine Valley College, all college-level writing classes have prerequisites. Students eligibility is verified during registration, and only eligible students will be allowed to enroll.

Campus Involvement: I was vice president of the English Club. student handbook irvine valley college 13

18 How to Add Classes Adding and Dropping Classes How to Drop Classes 1. FULL-TERM CLASSES You may add open classes on MySite from the beginning of your assigned registration time up to the day before the first class meeting. You can view the status of a class whether it is open or closed on MySite ( My Classes > Class Status ). 2. SHORT-TERM AND LATE-START CLASSES You are encouraged to enroll in short-term and late-start classes early before they are full/closed. 3. MULTIPLE ENROLLMENT/OVERLAPPING CLASS TIMES The registration system will block you from enrolling in multiple sections of the same course or from enrolling in classes whose time overlaps. These enrollment conditions are not permitted, and there are no exceptions. 4. YOU MAY ENROLL IN A MAXIMUM OF 19 UNITS. 5. You must pay all required course fees when you enroll, or you may be dropped for non-payment. Options for Full/Closed Classes Here are some suggestions of what to do if you discover that the class you want is full or closed: 1. Select another time. 2. Select another course. 3. Attend the first class meeting, then ask the instructor if you can be added to the class. If the answer is yes, the instructor will give you an APC (Add Permit Code). You will be able to register online for the class using the unique APC number issued by the instructor, or you may submit the APC or signed add permit to the Office of Admissions and Records for processing. Where to find the add deadline: The deadline to add a specific class is indicated on the APC document the instructor provides. The deadline may not be extended. You must enroll within the deadline printed on the APC. Where to find the instructor s Go to the online schedule and locate your class. Clicking on the icon next to the instructor s name will bring up a blank addressed to the instructor. 4. For some classes, you might be automatically put in PAL (Priority Add List). PAL is a priority system for instructors to use to accept additional students, but it does not guarantee enrollment. You still need to attend first class meeting and request to be added. It is the student s responsibility to drop or withdraw from classes! You may drop or withdraw online through your MySite account, or you can file a Drop Card in person at the Office of Admissions and Records. Only drops completed prior to refund deadlines are eligible for refund consideration. Deadlines for Dropping Check the online class schedule ( Details ) for exact drop deadlines for each course you enroll in. To drop with a refund: The refund date for each class is on your class schedule. Drops after that date will not be eligible for a refund of the fees paid for the dropped class. To drop without a transcript annotation: The drop must be submitted prior to the first 30% of the course based on the individual class. To drop with a W annotation: All courses dropped at the 30% point and up until the 65% point will be recorded on the transcript as a W. To drop after the 65% point: Drops are not allowed after the 65% point except under narrowly defined extenuating circumstances. See the college catalog or the Office of Admissions and Records for information. NOTE: For students receiving Financial Aid, all transcript recordings of W will be counted as units attempted and will be assessed toward their total unit limit of 90 units. 16 irvine valley college student handbook

19 Guidelines for Repeating Courses Please note: Regulations on repeatability are currently under review. Changes are anticipated in the academic year. See your counselor or the Office of Admissions and Records for more information. Courses may be repeated only under limited circumstances. 1. SUBSTANDARD GRADES. Most courses may be repeated twice when the student has earned a substandard grade ( D, F, or NP ). To suppress a substandard grade, the student can retake the same course at Irvine Valley College or take the equivalent course at Saddleback College. The student must ensure that the course to be repeated is deemed equivalent prior to taking it. (See an IVC counselor for a list of Saddleback College courses that are recognized as equivalent to Irvine Valley College courses.) Neither IVC nor Saddleback College can assure that repeated courses will be treated in this way by other colleges. Students are allowed to repeat a course two times to alleviate a substandard grade. Additional retakes may be permitted on a limited basis through a formal petition process through the Office of Admissions and Records. When a student repeats a course due to a substandard grade, a maximum of two previous grades and credits (if applicable) are disregarded in computing the student s grade point average. However, all previous work will remain on the student s transcript to ensure a true and complete academic history. 2. SKILL DEVELOPMENT. Some courses in which skills may be developed by instruction over more than one semester may be repeated. These courses are identified in the IVC catalog with an R (Repeat) code R-A, R-E, or R-I at the end of their course description. The number following the code tells you how many times the course may be repeated. For example, a course with the code R E-3 may be repeated three times. 3. LAPSE OF TIME. Most courses completed with a satisfactory grade may be repeated one additional time after a period of three years. However, this exception is considered only by petition. Students should contact the Office of Admissions and Records for more information. If the repeat is allowed, the grade earned when the class is repeated will be used for the GPA computation, and the previous grade will be annotated as a repeat and will not be counted in the GPA computation. 4. EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES. If a student has experienced extenuating circumstances (documented evidence of illness, accident, or other circumstances beyond the student s control), an additional repeat may be considered. Consult the Office of Admissions and Records for information about the appeals process. Any student registering to repeat a course not identified as repeatable or repeating a course more often than permitted may be dropped from the course. S T U D E N T P R O F I L E FAQs About Repeating Courses I passed the course, but I want to improve my grade. Can I take it again? If you passed a course with a satisfactory grade ( A, B, C, or P ), you may not repeat the course to improve your recorded grade. Contact the Office of Admissions and Records for assistance in these circumstances. Is there any way to take a course another time after I have taken it for the maximum number of repeats allowed? If you have repeated courses the maximum number of times allowed, you may be able to enroll through Community Education for additional hours of instruction. Information is available in the Community Education Office and in the department and school offices. Be aware that courses taken through Community Education are not available for college credit and will not appear on your college transcript. What happens if I manage to enroll in a course that I have already taken for the maximum number of times? You should be blocked from enrolling in a course if you have already taken it the maximum number of times. Any student registering to repeat a course not identified as repeatable or repeating a course more often than permitted may be dropped from the course.

Long-term Goal: Find a career that makes me happy, pays the bills and keeps me entertained at work. IVC s Greatest Strength: It s a small, intimate campus. It s a good place to take that jump from high school to a university. It also offers people of all ages above high school a chance to change their lives. The Theatre Department is just all-around great. Campus Involvement: Theatre student handbook irvine valley college 17

20 College Units Units: How Many Should You Take? A college unit (or student hour ) is a term used to define the time value of a course, or a unit of time and student work involved. A one-unit lecture class typically requires one (1) hour of in class instruction and two (2) hours of student work outside of class per week for a week semester. In a lab class, the majority of the student s work is done in class. A one-unit lab class typically requires three (3) hours of class instruction for a week semester. When deciding on how many units to take, it is very important to plan time for attending class; completing reading assignments, writing assignments, and other homework assignments; and studying. You are expected to be fully prepared for each class before the class period begins. Managing Work and School Do not overload yourself when you register for classes. Design a course load that is reasonable for your level of energy and motivation. If you are going to school and working, the maximum amount of work recommended is as follows: Work Take no more than 40 hours per week 3 6 units 30 hours per week 6 9 units 20 hours per week 9 12 units 5 15 hours per week units The formula to determine the expected amount of TOTAL TIME required for a class is as follows: For each 1 unit of in-class time for a lecture class, schedule 2-3 hours per week for studying. EXAMPLE 3-unit lecture class: Class time = 3 hours per week Attendance in class Study time = 6 hours per week Out-of-class assignments (reading, studying, preparing) Total time = 9 hours per week If you plan to take 12 units, you need to reserve 24 hours per week outside of class to complete your reading and homework assignments. In other words, between attending class and completing assignments, you would need to commit a total of 36 hours per week to school. You may take as little as.5 unit and as many as 19 units during a single semester. If you want to take more than 19 units (not including work experience or independent study), you must have a cumulative 3.0 grade point average and you must fill out an overload petition form (available in the Counseling Center) to be considered. P/NP (Pass and No-Pass) Option You may declare the need to take a class with the P/NP option during online registration or in person at the Office of Admissions and Records within the first 30 percent of the class (see the online schedule for deadlines). Before choosing this option, talk with an IVC counselor. There are transfer implications and limitations to consider when selecting P/NP grading. After the 30% point of the class, this is a nonreversible decision so please select it with care. 18 irvine valley college student handbook
