Passing students and recent graduates must pay the balance of the exam fee once they have graduated and documented two years of exempt-level (professional) HR work experience. They have five years from the date of passing the exam to obtain the two years of exempt-level (professional) HR work experience. Student/recent graduate candidates are not eligible to take the SPHR certification exam"(page 9).
