The mission of the Mathematics Department at Irvine Valley College is to help our students achieve their mathematical potential and to prepare them for their educational and career goals.

Department Goals

The Mathematics Department at Irvine Valley College seeks to contribute to the fulfillment of the college's mission by helping students enrolled in our courses achieve the following goals:

  • Develop proficiency in the use of mathematics needed to function in society.
  • Develop proficiency in the use of mathematics necessary for a given graduation degree or certificate of completion program.
  • Acquire mathematical knowledge and skills for further career achievement.

Honors Program

The Irvine Valley College Honors Program is designed to meet the needs of academically talented and highly motivated students. The program offers eligible students access to the following opportunities:

  • Small, seminar-style honors classes
  • Enriched coursework
  • Interaction with other motivated students
  • Recognition on transcripts and at graduation
  • Guaranteed priority admission review at many transfer institutions, including UCI and UCLA
  • Research conferences and publication venues
  • Dedicated honors scholarships
  • Designated honors counselor
  • Priority registration for classes
  • Honors study lounge in LA 107
  • Research conferences and publication venues
  • Leadership positions
  • Field trips and field studies
  • Social and cultural activities
  • Complimentary library card at UCI and UCLA

Eligible students may enroll in honors-designated courses, most of which meet the general education transfer requirements for the University of California and California State University systems. Honors sections are noted in the schedule of classes by the letter "H" before the ticket number. For special consideration by transfer institutions and for recognition on the transcript, Honors Program students must complete a minimum of five courses and 15 letter-graded units of honors-designated coursework during their academic career at IVC (courses taken on a credit/ no-credit basis do not fulfill Honors Program requirements). Students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.25; they must also achieve a 3.25 GPA in their honors courses. Students must also complete two honors courses per year and may not take all five of the required honors courses in the spring semester prior to transfer.
