Analyzing Your University’s HR Degree Program for HRCI Alignment

This independent review, which is open to U.S. and international universities, provides an opportunity for faculty to gain additional support for their programs when requesting resources within their school or when seeking approval of curriculum changes. Upon receiving the alignment application and documentation, HRCI will conduct the curriculum analysis, communicate the results, and ask any questions about unclear or incomplete information. Once the HR degree program (undergraduate or graduate) has been determined to align with our curriculum guidelines, the college or university will be notified by email. The school will receive an official letter and certificate of alignment, along with a confirmation language that can be used as needed. The HR degree program will be posted in our Program Directory and available to students seeking HR programs. Colleges and universities will be required to renew this alignment once a year; we will send a renewal application with the instructions on what documentation to provide.
