The CBC Dual Enrollment program provides high school students the opportunity to enroll in college-credit courses. The CBC dual enrollment courses are offered at a reduced rate of tuition (almost 1/2 of non-dual student tuition & for Bee county residents tuition & general use fees are waived). Students gain the necessary skills needed to be successful in post-secondary education while in high school. Sometimes Dual Enrollment is referred to as "dual credit" or "concurrent enrollment/credit". UPDATE: All new CBC students are required to enroll in EDUC 1300 (Learning Frameworks,My Cougar Course) starting Fall 2016. If you have not registered for this course, please contact your Dual Enrollment Specialist today! The EDUC 1300 course is part of the college's Quality Enhancement Plan, CBC Smart Start (please click link for more information). There are no pre-requisites for this course and no TSI requirement. The course covers topics important to all CBC student' success such as: time management, communication, learning theories, learning styles, choosing a major, career exploration, goal setting, learning about degree plans, stress/wellness, note-taking, critical thinking skills, conflict resolution, financial literacy and much more. The Coastal Bend College Dual Enrollment program is a proud affiliate member of the National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). NACEP emerged in 1997 as the national forum for concurrent enrollment professionals. At NACEP's national conferences, concurrent enrollment leaders from around the nation gather to share best practices, present research finding and discuss state policy developments. CBC is one of the 241 two-year college members. For more information regarding NACEP, please visit their website at www.nacep.org.
