The CLEP exam fee is $87 (subject to change). To take a CLEP test at SWOSU, you must first create a CLEP account and register for your test at: https://clep.collegeboard.org.

The $87 test fee must be paid within your College Board account. Schedule testing appointments by calling either the Weatherford or Sayre testing center.
