If you intend to Transfer
Courses that fulfill major requirements for an associate degree at Irvine Valley College may not be the same as those required for completing the major at a transfer institution offering a baccalaureate degree. If you plan to transfer to a four-year college or university, you should consult the catalog of your prospective transfer institution (see the IVC Transfer Center for assistance) and schedule an appointment with an IVC counselor to develop a plan of study before you begin your program.
