Mental Health Services
The HWC offers individual therapy via Zoom during business hours. California State Laws for licensed therapists require you to be present in California for any therapy appointment. We cannot provide any therapy sessions with anyone who is traveling or outside of California. If you would like to make an appointment, please email email@example.com or call the "Ask a Nurse" hotline at 949-451-5687 to schedule an appointment or for more information.
Currently, our HWC is available to care for students for Family Practice (i.e. reproductive care) or other non-emergency needs.
However, our "Ask a Nurse" hotline can help with:
- Flu and cold symptoms
- Pink eye
- Respiratory problems
The Health and Wellness Center is operated by a group of health care professionals who are dedicated to the wellness of IVC students, faculty and staff. Physicians and registered nurses offer basic outpatient services for the diagnosis and treatment of acute and subacute illness and injuries. For those medical and surgical problems that are beyond the scope of the Health and Wellness Center, patients will be referred to local community health facilities.
All currently enrolled students that have paid the health fee at Irvine Valley College are eligible for student health services upon proof of enrollment. Faculty, staff, and students will receive first aid and referrals at no cost.
Student Health Fees
Students at IVC pay a mandatory student health fee each semester, which offsets the cost of some of our services. There is a nominal fee for some services, such as pharmacy, laboratory tests, exams, and immunizations. These fees must be paid in full prior to receiving services. The staff will explain all the extra fees at the time of your visit.
If you are involved with an accident on campus:
- Immediately report accidents to instructors, coaches, trainers or Campus Police.
- File an accident report with the Health and Wellness Center within 72 hours.
California Community Colleges do not require proof of immunization for enrollment. Depending on the major, immunizations may be necessary prior to acceptance into selected programs. Students should consult with the specific department for further information.
