College Level Examination Program
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 SWOSU Assessment Center. The CLEP exam fee is $90 (subject to change). To take a CLEP test at SWOSU, you must first create a CLEP account and REGISTER for your test. There are additional administration and essay fees. These administrative fees should be paid at the SWOSU Marketplace.
After paying the administration fees, schedule a testing appointment. For best results, you should schedule only one CLEP per day.
There is no refund for "no shows" nor for rescheduling with less than 24 hours notice.
You must present your CLEP Ticket and your photo ID to Assessment staff for testing appointments.
