Students who pass both the Society of Actuaries Exam P/1 and FM/2 must take a 3 credit course to replace the required MATH 354 or 355. The replacement course must be selected from the electives list.

This program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree only. All students will be required to complete a survey designated by the department in the semester in which they graduate.

The following additional courses are strongly recommended, as they satisfy the Validation by Educational Experience requirements of the actuarial societies: ACC 201, ECON 201, ECON 202, and FIN 300. Students are encouraged to take PHYC 120 which satisfies the TIER 1 natural science requirement in the University Core Curriculum.
