Yes, there is. The method you're looking for is /users/{ID}. Example:

Which returns JSON data looking like this:

  "users": [
      "reputation": 17246,

Keep in mind that if you are using JavaScript to access the API, you will need to use JSONP.

This answer is currently obsolete due to the API 1.1 shutdown and the addition of new routes. – Brock Adams Jul 22 '14 at 23:58

Since now 1.1 is deprecated the following url is to be used to get the reputation score:


See the docs for /users/{ids}/reputation.
