Transcripts

Transcripts will be released only upon written request by the student. Transcript request forms may be obtained in the Office of Admissions and Records, in the Counseling Center, or at www.ivcc.edu/admissions/transcript. In order to better protect the security of student records released by the Office of Admissions and Records, a photo ID will be required when a transcript is picked up in the office. When another person is picking up an official document listed above, that person will need a letter signed by the student to release the document and will be asked for a photo ID as well.

Student IDs

It is recommended all students have an IVCC photo ID. ID photos are taken in the Admissions & Records office:

IDs are required in Jacobs Library to check out books, for free admittance to cultural or intercollegiate sporting events, and when using the Computer Labs.

Effective Summer 2011, the student's K-Number (on the bottom of the student ID) is the username for WebAdvisor, Blackboard, and the network.  It is the first part of a student's IVCC email address (knumber@students.ivcc.edu).  It will never be used to identify a student.  It is to be used only as the username to log into the various computerized college systems.

Students can find their K-Number by:

1.    Visiting the WebAdvisor home page and clicking on "What is my user ID".

2.    Using any of the "What is my K-Number" computers across campus.

3.    Visiting the Learning Commons in D-201. 

If requesting a new card, students are required to bring a copy of their schedule and their old ID card.  If the student does not have their old ID, they are required to show a photo ID and pay a $5 replacement fee.

Effective Summer 2011, all students will be responsible for checking their IVCC email.  Official electronic college correspondence will only be sent to the student's IVCC email account.  For information on accessing this account, please contact the Learning Commons in D-201.

Insurance

The college does not offer a group health or health/accident insurance policy for students. Each student must secure that coverage for him/herself, if desired.

Intercollegiate Athletics

The college recognizes the value of athletic participation and, therefore, supports intercollegiate athletic programs for men and women.

Intercollegiate sports at IVCC include five sports for each gender.  Men's Baseball, Basketball, Golf, Soccer and Tennis.  Women's Softball, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer and Tennis. Students wishing to participate on college intercollegiate athletic teams should contact the Athletic Director in Room G-210, (815) 224-0471. More complete information can be found at www.ivcc.edu/athletics.

Records

The Office of Admissions and Records has the responsibility of maintaining the permanent academic records of all students who attend IVCC. Requests to have an official transcript sent to another institution must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records in writing. The forms are available in the Office of Admissions and Records, in the Counseling Center or at www.ivcc.edu/admissions/transcript.

In order to better protect the security of student records released by the Office of Admissions and Records, a photo ID will be required when a schedule, transcript, or insurance form is picked up in the office. When another person is picking up an official document listed above, that person will need a letter signed by the student to release the document and will be asked for a photo ID as well.

In situations where a person does not have one of the above forms of ID, the document will be processed immediately and mailed to the student address on file.
