SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.

Your high school transcripts??? What a PITA!!!

Oh no! Recently took the exam and passed. Yes, they randomly select applications to audit and it’s usually pretty rough. One thing to think about is taking the PHR and hoping you don’t get selected their too 😂 maybe chat with them and see what they say and what they will accept? Good luck!

I've never heard of an application audit actually

I had this, this is why I save all my HRCI certificates to my email. I just attach all the PDFs to the application. Use Tools2Suceed it’s only $300 for 120 credits of e learning . Take photos of your degrees and email them.

I've never dealt with it, but have heard of this. So sorry OP, I know it can be incredibly frustrating
