Recruiting International Students

Recruit Qualified Students

Use College Board Search

Students from all over the world take Advanced Placement (AP) Exams and the SAT to show they’re ready for university-level coursework. When your university is set up to receive these scores, more high-performing students will consider applying for admission because they’ll know you value the time and effort they’ve spent building their skills.

To start receiving AP and SAT scores, your university needs an official College Board code, called a designated institution (DI) code.

Target Your Recruitment Efforts

College Board Search makes it easier and more efficient to recruit students from around the globe who are a good fit for your university. You can be confident that you’re accessing the largest, most effective source of college-bound student data.
