“Achieving the Dream has been the engine Coastal Bend College has used to embrace student success; the tips and tools we have gained in the network are helping us look internally at how we can improve our service to students. The results are promising and the cultural shift to have a college-wide effort focus on students is well underway.”
–Dr. Beatriz Espinoza, President, Coastal Bend College
Who We Are
At CBC you are more than a number in the computer - you are an individual. CBC administrators and teachers care. There are small classes, and you will find free tutoring in our unique Student Success Center where special seminars are held to stimulate your study skills, and reinforce what you have learned in the classroom. That’s possible with the computer-assisted instructional center staffed with tutors who work one-on-one with students. CBC helps you develop skill for success. In the student development center, you will get assistance in blending your talents in the field of study or career that best suits you. Studies of CBC graduates show that more than three-quarters are either working or earning university degrees. Similar studies show that CBC graduates have among the highest success rates in receiving university degrees - equal to those who began their studies at large institutions. CBC strives to ensure that anyone who wants an education can get it. Scholarships, work-study programs and grants focus on your needs.
