College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

SWOSU is a computerized CLEP testing center and accepts credit earned by CLEP exams. Credit earned from CLEP exams will appear on your SWOSU transcript only after completing 12 credit hours of study at Southwestern. CLEP exams are administered at the above noted Weatherford and Sayre locations. The College Board CLEP exam fee is $85 (subject to change). To take a CLEP test at Southwestern, you must first create a CLEP account and register for your test at: http://clep.collegeboard.org.

The $85 test fee must be paid within your College Board account. Schedule testing appointments by calling either the Weatherford or Sayre testing center.
