Coastal Bend College

The latest official news from CBC!

Coastal Bend College is offering over 65 sections of the core curriculum and workforce courses in summer session I and 38 sections for summer session II that students can register for such as history, government, economics, Spanish, biology, and speech. Many of these courses are also offered online.

Because some of these courses are part of the core curriculum, students can jump-start their college education before heading off to the university in the fall. In addition to earning college credit hours, students and their families can save hundreds of dollars per 3 credit hour course.

Texas A&M College Station, Corpus Christi, and Kingsville charge an average of over $970 for a 3 credit hour course. The University of Texas at Austin charges $2353. CBC in-district students pay about $260 and out-of-district students pay about $445 for a 3 credit hour course. That is a savings of over 73-percent and 46-percent per 3 credit hour course for in-district and out-of-district students, respectively.

Recent high school graduates and other students who did not attend in the fall or spring semesters may be eligible for financial aid if they qualify, since none of their eligibility would have been used for the 2018-2019 academic year. In order for students to be eligible for summer aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2018-2019 year has to be submitted by June 30, 2019.

Utilizing financial aid in the summer would have no effect on a recent high school graduate or new/returning student’s award amount for the 2019-2020 academic year if they qualify. If you have questions about your financial aid eligibility or need assistance submitting your FAFSA, please contact the CBC Financial Aid Office at (361) 354-2238.

Students who wish to enroll in either summer session can register Monday-Thursday from 7:00 am-6:00 pm with advisors and counselors at all of our campuses. To talk with an advisor about summer registration, please call (361) 354-2266 or toll-free at 1-866-722-2838 ext. 2266.

Don’t wait until fall to start your college courses—at CBC your future can begin here and now with summer session I starting June 3, 2019, and summer session II starting July 10, 2019.
