About Community Services

Imperial Valley College Community Services offers courses that are short-term, fee based courses in areas of public interest. These courses are open to the entire community and are entirely supported by student fees. IVC reserves the right to cancel courses due to low enrollment with full reimbursement.

How do I register?

You may register online. Registration continues throughout the semester on a first-come, first-served basis. Many classes fill quickly, so register early to avoid disappointment.

If you wait until the first day of class, you run the risk of the class either being full or being canceled and not knowing about the cancellation.

Do I have to pay for a parking pass?

If your class meets at the IVC Main Campus, you will need to purchase a parking pass. Day passes are only $2 per day. Full term passes are $25. The passes are available at the parking office 902. Parking permits are waived on Saturday and Sundays.
