Actuarial Exams & VEE Credit

In order to become a credentialed actuary, you will need to pass a series of professional examinations, demonstrate a strong background in other subject areas (VEE requirements), and complete practically oriented modules and a course on professionalism.

For a current list of requirements, see here for the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and here for the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).

We encourage students to pass Exam P prior to their first Fall semester in the MS/AcSci program, as this significantly improves their chances of landing an actuarial summer internship.
