    What is Dual Enrollment? 

    Dual Enrollment is an opportunity that allows qualified high school students to enroll at Coastal Bend College and earn college credit and possibly receive high school credit simultaneously. Dual Enrollment courses are offered on the CBC campus (including all sites in Alice, Kingsville and Pleasanton), your high school campus and through Distance Learning Technology. Always speak with your high school counselor before moving forward with dual enrollment options.

    Is Dual Enrollment right for you?

    It is an opportunity to take challenging courses to begin a college education. Dual enrollment courses become part of your permanent college transcript, so its important that you commit the extra time and effort that a college course requires. Do you accept the challenge?
