Those not taking the PHR

See Masters' Comprehensive Exam Registration Form to register for Comps and get important exam information.

Important Note:
Please plan to arrive no later than 8:15 a.m. You will need your Student I.D. to take the exam. Nothing is to be carried into the testing room. You will be supplied with materials necessary to take and complete the exam.

*In order to take the Comprehensive Exam you have to be a 'graduate' student attending our college and approved by the professor and/or degree coordinator.*

I/O students taking PHR check below

I/O students may choose to substitute the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) exam of the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) for the I/O comprehensive exam (comps) given by the psychology department.

Students who pass the PHR will NOT be required to take the comprehensive exam in I/O. The PHR exam is currently offered twice a year May/June & December/January.

It is the student's responsibility to submit to the I/O graduate program coordinator official documentation that he/she has passed the PHR exam. PHR exam must be passed within six (6) years of the date the student first enrolled in the I/O program. A failed attempt at the PHR does not count as a failed attempt at comps. A second failure of comps terminates eligibility for PHR substitution.

For more information please see your advisor.
