IMPERIAL — For the up-and-coming artists in the Imperial Valley, Ernesto Yerena is proof hard work and innovation can move the masses.
The local artist has worked with Shepard Fairy of Obey Giant and Zack de la Rocha of rock band Rage Against the Machine on an "Immigration Reform Now!" campaign.
In an effort to help inspire future artists, Yerena presented to a group of students at the Juanita Lowe Art Gallery at Imperial Valley College here Wednesday.
"(The presentation) was really interesting," said Danielle Grass, a 23-year-old IVC art student. "I've never see art like that."
The California Community Colleges Board of Governors approved changes that will establish system-wide enrollment priorities designed to ensure classes are available for students seeking job training, degree attainment or transfer and to reward students who make progress toward their educational goals.
I. What are the new criteria?
1. Students must matriculate - complete Mathematics and English assessment (or provide approved alternative), and complete college orientation & advisement.
2. Students must have an education plan.
3. Continuing students must be in good academic standing (2.0 G.P.A.) and have not exceeded 100 units (not including units in basic English, basic Math or English as a Second Language). We encourage students on probation to seek help to improve their academic standing. Students nearing 100 units should carefully plan their remaining courses.
II. Will students who currently get priority, based on California Community College regulations continue to get priority?
Active-duty military and veterans, current and former foster youth, followed by students in Extended Opportunity Programs and Services and Disabled Students Programs and Services will continue to have first priority for registration if they meet the same criteria listed above.
III. What if I don't meet the new criteria?
Students that don't meet the above criteria will enroll after the students who have earned priority.
IV. What if I am a concurrently enrolled high school student?
California Community College regulations require that concurrently enrolled high school students receive a low enrollment date so as not to displace adult students.

Your IVC Student Email Account should be already created (or will be created automatically for you very soon)! Please visit the following page on the Student Portal for more information about how you can access your student email account: https://my.imperial.edu/student-email.
From now on, IVC students will be expected to check their email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with college-related communications.Students have the responsibility to recognize that certain communications may be time-critical. Do not rely on any courtesy email forwarding or other means to ensure you are receiving important IVC information! The best strategy is to get accustomed to checking this email account at least once a day while a student at IVC, especially during critical times such as registration.
Beginning Fall 2011 each Financial Aid student will be evaluated EVERY SEMESTER for satisfactory progress and a MAXIMUM TIMEFRAME policy will go into effect which will limit the amount of time a student can receive Financial Aid.
