About IVC Community Education

Courses are moderately priced and are available on convenient days and times to meet your needs.  Class lengths vary from a few hours to several meeting dates.


Community Education course schedules are published three times per year.  The schedule is available here from this website, or through our online  registration site.  Whatever your reason to enroll, Community Education at Irvine Valley College makes it easy and fun to learn.
