How to Look Up CEEB Codes

What is a CEEB code?

CEEB stands for College Entrance Examination Board, which is what College Board used to be known as. A CEEB code is a unique identifier that College Board assigns to high schools, colleges, and universities. Students use these codes at different points in the college application process to identify different institutions, including high schools, colleges, universities, and scholarship programs.


When do you need to find your school’s CEEB code?

You’ll need the CEEB code if you’re applying to some colleges directly or using the Common Application. It allows your school to submit forms and documents—such as your transcript—on your behalf.


How do I find my CEEB code?

The CEEB code for your high school is often provided to you by your school. If you need to find your school’s CEEB code, you can also use the K–12 School Code Search.

When looking for the CEEB Code for a K–12 school, you’ll need the name of the school and state or zip code to fill out the search form. If you want to verify that you have the correct K–12 school code, you can search using the code to ensure you have the correct school. The codes for K–12 schools are always six-digit numbers.


What is the CEEB code if I’m homeschooled?

The high school code for all homeschoolers is 970000.


What are Score Reporting Codes?

When you take the SAT on a school day (or register to take the SAT on a weekend), you can send your scores for free to up to four places—these can be colleges, universities, or scholarship programs. The CEEB Codes for these institutions are four-digit codes. They can all be found in this code list. You can also send your scores online using your College Board account. The code search is built into the score sending tool.


What are other codes I might need?

In your college journey, you may come across times when you’ll need other codes. These other codes include five-digit codes assigned to test centers if you’re registering online for the SAT on a weekend (search here).
