Due to the rapidly changing public health concerns, Coastal Bend College's Fall commencement ceremony has been postponed until further notice. At this time, the graduation committee is working on alternatives to continue celebrating the achievements of our CBC graduates. 

    I want to thank you all for your continued patience and understanding. We want to reassure you that Coastal Bend College is monitoring COVID-19 developments. Our priority remains the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and local community.
