• Welcome to New Student Orientation and Welcome to Coastal Bend College! 

    Where students come first and where your future begins!       

    At Coastal Bend College we want to support your educational dreams and career goals. The information provided on the online orientation is designed to help you become a successful student. By completing the online orientation we know that you are serious about your education and meeting some important goals in your life. There is much more information you need to know and we encourage you to become familiar with the college catalog, semester class schedule, and student handbook. These documents provide important information on becoming a better student, understanding the programs of study (your degree plan), available support services, academic policies, and expected student conduct.

    Our goal is to provide you with beneficial information to enable you to make informed and educated decisions. We welcome any questions you may have. We look forward to helping you by serving your educational needs.    

    We wish you the very best success at Coastal Bend College.
