CEEB codes are numerical identifiers assigned to high schools, colleges and universities for unambiguous identification. They are maintained by the College Board and used for administrative purposes, such as sending test results, application materials and financial aid coordination.
CEEB codes are used to identify the colleges where a student wishes to have test scores sent. The first step in taking SAT and AP examinations is the personal information identification, which includes a section for schools. A booklet is usually provided to students to look up their chosen schools and record the CEEB code on the paperwork. The College Board sends test results for free to the schools chosen during the examination. High schools are also assigned CEEB codes for the same administrative purposes.
