Who should attend

HR professionals who implement policies and strategies, serve as point of contact for staff and stakeholders, deliver HR services, and perform operational HR functions, should take the SHRM-CP©/SHRM-SCP© exam.

About the course

Earning your SHRM-CP© or SHRM-SCP© credential makes you a recognized expert and leader in the HR field—and a valuable asset to your organization, keeping you and your organization more competitive in today's economy. This professional distinction sets you apart from your colleagues, proving your high level of knowledge and skills.

The profession is no longer just about what you know—facts and figures—but rather how you effectively implement that knowledge in the workplace each and every day. SHRM certification provides you the opportunity to prove not only what you know but also how you can apply that knowledge on the job.

As an official SHRM distributor, Michigan State University is excited to offer a program specifically designed to get HR professionals ready for the SHRM-CP©/SHRM-SCP© examination.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Applicants must meet specific educational and work experience criteria at the time they submit their application in order to be eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP©/SHRM-SCP© exam.

These requirements are outlined below:

Less than a Bachelor's Degree (working toward a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree, some college, qualifying HR certificate program, high school diploma, or GED.)

  • Credential | HR-Related Program | Non-HR Program
  • SHRM-CP | 3 years in HR role | 4 years in HR role
  • SHRM-SCP | 6 years in HR role | 7 years in HR role

Bachelor's Degree

  • Credential | HR-Related Degree | Non-HR Degree
  • SHRM-CP | 1 year in HR role | 2 years in HR role
  • SHRM-SCP | 4 years in HR role | 5 years in HR role

Graduate Degree

  • Credential | HR-Related Degree | Non-HR Degree
  • SHRM-CP | Currently in HR role | 1 year in HR role
  • SHRM-SCP | 3 years in HR role | 4 years in HR role

The following general eligibility criteria, listed below, also apply:

  • HR-related experience relates to work in any of the 15 functional areas of HR knowledge which comprise the technical competency HR Expertise, identified in the SHRM BoCK.
  • Applicants are not required to hold an HR title. The critical factor in determining eligibility is your HR-related work as opposed to your job title.
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they devoted at least 1,000 hours to HR-related activities in any calendar year to qualify as having a year of HR-related experience. More than 1,000 hours in a calendar year does not equate to more than 1 year of experience.
  • Part-time work qualifies as long as the 1,000-hour standard is met within a calendar year.
  • Individuals who have mixed roles—for example, office managers who have both administrative and HR responsibilities—may also have qualifying experience, as long as HR-related duties total at least 1,000 hours in a calendar year. Supervising employees in and of itself is not considered qualifying HR-related experience.
  • Experience may be either exempt or nonexempt.
  • Individuals who are HR consultants may demonstrate qualifying experience through the HR-related duties they perform for their clients. Contracted hours must total at least 1,000 hours in a calendar year.
  • SHRM membership is not required.

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

Students who are enrolled in their final year of an undergraduate or graduate degree program at a college or university that has been approved by SHRM’s Academic Initiatives staff as being aligned to SHRM’s curriculum guidelines are eligible to sit for the SHRM-CP©/SHRM-SCP© exam. 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.
