All currently enrolled students that have paid the health fee at Irvine Valley College are eligible for student health services upon proof of enrollment. IVC 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 HWC staff will explain all the extra fees at the time of your visit.
