CCCApply Schools & Colleges Lists

CCCApply Schools & Colleges are not maintained manually in the database. Official school information with codes (CDS and CEEB) are maintained by the CDE and the College Board. See more below.

CCCApply Schools Maintenance 


CCCApply maintains a school “look-up” feature as part of CCCApply. This allows students to select a High School or previous College and automatically the CDS and CEEB code attach to the application record, thus the code(s) becomes part of the download file imported into a College’s SIS application. 

CCC Technology center receives updates every 4-6 weeks. These files are uploaded to the database quarterly, then accessed by students during the application process.


Share the process steps with California Community College staff, to enable them to assist educational institutions to gain either or both a CDS or CEEB code. 
Share the sites that educational institutions may use to request a CDS or CEEB code, and make corrections / changes to their institutions information.

What is it?A CDS code is a unique number assigned to a California school and used for funding assessment, accountability, grant applications, and data reporting purposes. CDS codes are assigned by the California Department of Schools and are not assigned to programs. 

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. \
