Headline: CBC’s Financial Aid Priority Deadline is May 1

Coastal Bend College’s (CBC) priority deadline for financial aid is fast approaching. Students planning to enroll at CBC for the 2016-2017 semester should submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the College’s priority deadline of May 1.

Although the deadline is May 1, CBC’s Financial Aid Office will still process and award students who submit their FAFSA after the May 1 deadline. Students should note that submitting their FAFSA early can potentially increase the number of grant dollars awarded to a student since many state and federal grants are awarded based on the student’s application submission date.

The FAFSA application can be found and submitted online at In order to ensure that the application reaches CBC’s Financial Aid Office in a timely manner, applicants should use CBC’s federal school code of 003546. Additional paperwork or information may be necessary to complete CBC’s financial aid process, so students should check their mailbox and email regularly for correspondence from the College.

Applicants who need assistance submitting their FAFSA can visit any CBC location for assistance or call the CBC Financial Aid Office at (361) 354-2238.
