8 Associate in Arts/Science Degrees Associate in Arts/Science degrees with an area of emphasis are designed for students who want to earn a college degree with a focus, whether to achieve a personal or career goal or in preparation for transfer to the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), or a private or out-of-state university. Those students who intend to earn an associate degree prior to transfer are advised to consult with the counseling faculty as early as possible to develop an appropriate educational plan to achieve their academic goals and degree and their transfer objectives. This is especially important because different transfer institutions may require specific general education patterns and lower-division courses to fulfill major requirements.

9 Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA -T) or Associate in Science for Transfer (AS -T) In order to earn one of these degrees, students must complete a minimum of 60 required semester units of CSU-transferable coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students transferring to a CSU campus that does accept the AA-T or AS-T will be required to complete no more than 60 units after transfer to earn a bachelor s degree (unless the major is a designated high-unit major). This degree may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to university or college that is not part of the CSU system. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.

17 Guaranteed Transfer UC/Honors Pathway UCLA TAP (Transfer Alliance Program) UCLATAP The Transfer Alliance Program is a collaboration between local community college Honors/Scholars Programs and the UCLA College of Letters and Science in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools. The program is designed to foster academic excellence at the community college level and to promote diversity and retention in the UCLA transfer population. Member community colleges provide enriched general education curricula emphasizing critical thinking, writing, and research through their Honors/Scholars programs. Students who have completed the Honors Program at IVC receive priority consideration for admission to the UCLA College of Letters and Science. Admitted TAP students are also eligible to apply for scholarships reserved for the TAP-certified students. The transfer rate to UCLA for students who complete the Honors Program is significantly higher than that of non-honors students. Transfer rates for IVC Honors Program students generally run between 80 and 90% compared to 20 to 30% for non-honors IVC students.

18 Guaranteed Transfer UC/Honors Pathway UCI Honors-to-Honors Transfer Agreement UCI's "Honors to Honors" program is a special transfer agreement available for students from select community colleges, including Irvine Valley College. The "Honors to Honors" program offers highperforming students who complete the IVC Honors Program several advantages including priority admission review, automatic admission to the UCI Campuswide Honors Program, guaranteed housing, individual advising, faculty mentoring for a Senior Thesis, and renewable Regents Scholarships. Eligibility requirements are subject to change. Students who complete the IVC Honors Program but are not eligible for the UCI's "Honors to Honors" program are also given special consideration in the evaluation of their transfer application and may be eligible for admission to UCI's Campus wide Honors Program.

19 Priority Registration New regulations this year will continue to reward students who are making progress toward their academic and career goals, while also granting priority registration status to some first-time students. Incoming freshman, and other first-time students, will be eligible to sign up for classes during the college s initial registration period, provided they complete all the steps associated with the college s mandatory SSSP (matriculation) process before May 15, 2016.

20 Community College Student Success and Support Program or SSSP (formally called Matriculation) Application Assessment (Math/English) Orientation (In-Person or Online) Counseling, advisement, planning an initial 1 st semester plan, and other educational services

21 Priority Registration (Cont) First-time students who complete the SSSP (Matriculation) steps and qualify for priority registration will better position themselves to experience a successful first semester By registering early, students will also have a better chance of enrolling in the key courses they need to fulfill their general education requirements, satisfy course prerequisites and quickly complete their degree and/or transfer to a four-year school.

22 Priority Enrollment Level 1: College students (excluding K-12 students) who: have not have been on academic or progress probation for their last two consecutive semesters Completed less than 100 units (basic skills units are not counted in this total) complete all matriculation steps in order 1.

Pre-Assigned Priority Groups 2. Freshman Advantage (only First-time College Students who complete matriculation by 05/15/2015) 3. Continuing Students (enrolled at IVC or Saddleback College during the previous fall/spring semester) 4. New and Returning Students

23 The Assessment The score earned on the Math/English Assessment Test will be used to determine the first Math /English course you will take at the community college. Math and English Assessment Sessions last approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes. ESL Assessment Session lasts approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes. Students need to review the material of their last Math/English courses before taking the test to make sure they are placed at the correct level. Placement in a lower level will increase the number of semesters they will need to achieve their goals.

24 Retest Policy You are permitted to take the Math Assessment every 3 months and the English and English as a Second Language Assessment every 6 months. Writing Sample Once you receive a recommended initial placement into a basic skills writing course, and you wish to be placed into a higher level course you may do so by providing a Writing Sample.
