University-Earned Credit Program

University-Earned Credit Program

University of Illinois Urbana – Champaign’s actuarial science program is one of 13 universities globally recognized by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) for its University-Earned Credit (UEC) program. The Actuarial Program has been approved to grant qualified students eligibility for UEC credits for all SOA exams that can be obtained through UEC credits, namely: FM, FAM_L, FAM_S, FAM, SRM, ASTAM and ALTAM. Through this program, degree-seeking students who participate in approved courses will be eligible for specific SOA exam credit after obtaining the required score. 

University of Illinois is among the nine universities in the U.S., two in Hong Kong and two in Australia, recognized by this SOA education program. Each of these universities are SOA Centers of Actuarial Excellence (CAE) that also meet the eight criteria and specific requirements of that program.  UIUC applied for the SOA’s UEC program and has successfully completed the intensive UEC evaluation process, ensuring their quality, rigor and testing integrity. These university programs are required to apply the standards of the UEC program to their courses. It is the same rigorous standards that the SOA applies to all current examinations. 

The SOA is the world’s largest actuarial professional organization with nearly 32,000 actuaries as members. Through research and education, the SOA’s mission is to advance actuarial knowledge and to enhance the ability of actuaries to provide expert advice and relevant solutions for financial, business and societal challenges.
