In North America, accreditation as an actuary is obtained through the Society of Actuaries (SOA) or the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS). Students interested in becoming an actuary need to complete the various components of the requirements for an Associate of the Society of Actuaries by passing the Society’s exams.
While McGill’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics does not offer a program tailored specifically to these requirements, it is nevertheless possible to complete some of the preliminary exams administered by the SOA and CAS while you are an undergraduate at McGill.
The table below shows the list of preliminary exams and their corresponding courses at McGill that will help you prepare. Do remember that these courses do not cover 100% of the materials on the preliminary exams; you should always seek extra practices on other resources such as recommended exam readings and SOA sample exams.
