College Entrance Examination Board Code (CEEB): 870900
THE 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 use CEEB codes on their applications.
Why is Accreditation Important?
- Accreditation represents a commitment to quality education.
- Accredited schools have a common core of transferable studies that meet world standards, differentiated only by typicality and appropriate concessions to culture.
- Accredited schools undergo regular re-evaluation by teams of professional educators whose focus is on school improvement and measuring student progress.
- Accreditation is a “seal of approval” and although not essential, it is important for students who will re-enter a school or university in the United States.
