Satisfactory completion of the Actuarial Science major automatically qualifies the student to apply for a minor in mathematics, subject to the Mathematics minor GPA restrictions (see the Mathematics section of this catalog). Students are ready to take the first and second actuarial exams at the end of their junior and senior years, respectively. Students are encouraged to participate in a summer internship during their junior/senior year. In the past, these internships have proven to be most valuable to students and their subsequent job search.
