    Returning & New Students 

    • Please review the CBC Course Catalog & Student Handbook as this will detail all of the student policies and procedures but all give you the course descriptions of all courses. You can also view the course catalog online by clicking here. Need assistance in viewing the online catalog?? Watch the how-to-video on how to view the online course catalog. 

    • Once you have chosen your preferred pathway, then become familiar with all of the course requirements. If you plan to transfer to a university, also review the university degree plan, so you can view which lower-division courses you can take at CBC to get ahead. 

    • Think of questions, that you would like to ask a CBC Success Coach prior to your visit. These questions can be about degree planning, transfer questions, career advice, community resources, etc. 

    • If you are a returning student and do NOT have any holds on your account, you can self-register through Cougar Den. Here is a how-to-video on how to register through Cougar Den.  



    CBC is proud to offer a developmental approach to advising with Success Coaches who specialize in providing quality advising. The CBC Success Coaches provide students with advising sessions that are personalized to meet the goals of each student. Once the student chooses their preferred degree or certificate, the Success Coach will develop a pathway plan with the student. A “pathway” is simply a plan that not only determines the sequence of courses but outlines student success strategies to help them be successful along the way.   


    In addition to the advising session, the CBC Success Coaches host a variety of student success workshops throughout the semester (i.e., study tips, career exploration, note-taking methods, etc.). This semester, the workshops are offered in a virtual format. To learn more about the student success workshops, visit www.coastalbend.edu/studentlife. CBC students can access the virtual room link through the college’s Learning Management System, Blackboard.
