Important Notes
Advanced Placement: Transfer schools require that students that place into MATH 143 or higher without AP credit are still required to take all math classes on this list for a grade. AP credit by exam will be accepted for the appropriate courses.
GPA Requirements: Students in this program need to maintain at least a 2.0 GPA (overall and in math, computer science, and economics).
Sample Plan of Study
The below plan of study is an example of the classes an actuary student at Albion College would take to successfully complete the program. This schedule assumes no advanced placement transfer credit. If such AP credit exists, the below schedule would be more flexible.
