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). 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". 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.
