Headline: Fall and summer registration happening now at CBC
Coastal Bend College (CBC) is now registering students for the summer and fall 2015 semesters. All incoming freshmen who are 21 years of age or younger will need a bacterial meningitis vaccination, along with the proper documentation, by May 22 for the summer semester and by Aug. 14 for the fall semester.
Students who have no holds on their account, have attended CBC in the last year or have an updated admissions form in the Registrar’s Office will be able to register online at www.coastalbend.edu through Campus Connect.
New students will be able to apply for admission at CBC online for free by visiting http://www.coastalbend.edu/applynow/. Resources are available at all of the CBC locations to assist students with the enrollment process, course selection and financial aid application. For more information or assistance, please visit the Student Success Center at your nearest CBC location to visit with a Student Development Specialist.
Students should note that the drop date/payment set up deadline for the fall 2015 semester is Aug. 10. CBC provides students the opportunity to set-up their payment arrangements for the fall semester through Campus Connect. For more information or assistance setting up a payment plan, please contact the CBC Business Office via phone at (361) 354-2220.
All students, current and future, should apply for financial aid as soon as possible. CBC’s priority financial aid deadline is May 1, and while applications will still be processed after the deadline, students who apply before then have a higher likelihood of receiving additional state grants to fund their education. The CBC Financial Aid Office will be able to assist students with completing and submitting their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). CBC’s FAFSA school code is 003546. Processing time for a student’s FAFSA application is approximately two weeks, so students are encouraged to apply early. For more information, please contact the CBC Financial Aid Office via phone at (361) 354-2238.
Students who need assistance with the enrollment process should contact the Dean of Student Services, Guadalupe Ganceres, via phone at (361) 354-2712 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
