There are hundreds of courses that satisfy various requirements, and courses in the major can be used. For example, Econ 103 counts towards the major and towards the Social Science GER. (This sample assumes no high school Foreign Language was taken and that the student placed into college-level Math and English.)

This plan does not replace the advice of your advisor, and you are cautioned to meet regularly with your advisor to create a personalized plan that matches their particular circumstances rather than following this verbatim. The information below also reflects the degree requirements for students who began their college education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started college coursework prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different.

To clarify any degree requirements, please contact the Director of Actuarial Science.
