Actuarial Club

The Math Department at WVU has an Actuarial Student Club that meets each week during the regular semester to hold group study sessions. The mission of the Actuarial Student Club is to bring students who are interested in actuarial science at WVU together, provide support in preparing for the actuarial exams, invite professionals from consulting firms and insurance companies locally and nationwide to give a talk, and build networks that help students and graduates find internships and employment opportunities.

If you are interested in joining the Actuarial Student Club, or need additional information, please feel free to email the Actuarial Student Club at actuarialclub@math.wvu.edu with any questions.

Faculty Advisor:
Dr. Fang Yang (fyang@mail.wvu.edu)

Actuarial Exams

In order to be competitive in the current job market, you must pass at least one actuarial exam before graduation. These exams do not need to be taken in any particular order, but most of the latter exams rely heavily on material covered in both Exams P/1 and FM/2. For more information on becoming an actuary, registering for preliminary exams, exam study materials, and more, please visit any of the following websites.
