The Imperial Valley University Partnership (IVUP), an innovative educational
partnership between San Diego State University, Imperial Valley Campus (SDSU-IV),
Imperial Valley College (IVC), and Imperial County Office of Education (ICOE),
offers an accessible, affordable, high quality education program with a clear path
to earn a bachelor’s degree in four years. It also offers students the option to obtain
an associate’s degree from IVC while they are completing the requirements for the
bachelor’s degree from SDSU.
All students who apply to SDSU-IV as first-time freshman will participate in the IVUP.
This program is designed to provide students with an enriched college and university
experience. It involves joint admission to IVC and SDSU-IV, meaning that students
will apply, be admitted, and attend classes at both schools for the first two years.
This arrangement, of attending both institutions, provides students with a seamless
transition between the first two years of their undergraduate education (as IVUP
students) and their final two years (at which point they are only SDSU students).
It also gives students full access to the resources, services, programs, facilities,
opportunities, and events at both institutions.
