If you are a SHRM student member enrolled in a Human Resources Management curriculum or certificate program, please seriously consider achieving certification status by obtaining your SHRM-CP credentials.

Students must also have accumulated at least 500 hours of an internship or practical HR experience and must be in good standing with their school. See a current listing of approved schools at shrm.org/academics/programdirectory.

The testing windows are the dates during which the exams are administered. The regular application deadline dates are the dates during which candidates can register for the exam. Candidates who apply during the late application period will incur a nonrefundable late fee.
