CEEB and School Codes

A CEEB code is a standardized ID number that is assigned to a high school, college, or university.  CEEB codes are issued by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).  These 4- to 6-digit codes are mostly used in college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT.  Many universities have opted to use CEEB codes on their applications.

To prevent errors, most applications do not allow manual entry of CEEB codes.  Instead they rely on a School Code Search.

Using the School Code Search

1. To use the tool, click on the "School Code Search" or "Find Your School" links.

2. The tool will open in a new window.  Enter in the name of the school.

3. Select the appropriate school name from the list of search results.  If you cannot locate your school or you know your school has not been assigned a CEEB code, search for "Not Listed", "Other", or "Unknown" and go to Step 4.

4. Once selected, the code will be inserted into your application.  You may need to enter the school's name, address, and other contact information as well.  If you select the wrong code, repeat steps 1 thru 3.  If the search returns no results, make sure you have typed in the school's name correctly. You may also try entering a partial name (e.g., "Fran" for "San Francisco").

5. Continue your application.
