VEE Courses

Requirements for Associateship in both the Society of Actuaries (SoA)and the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) include validation of educational experiences outside the Society’s education system (VEE).   The SoA requires you to validate proficiency in Economics, Accounting & Finance, and Mathematical Statistics.  The CAS requires only Economics and Accounting & Finance.

You can find more information on VEE courses at SOA.org.  UNC-CH offers courses that satisfy the VEE requirements.  You must receive a B- or higher to receive VEE credit.  Below is a chart of the current VEE requirements and the corresponding UNC-CH courses that we recommend.  Complete all VEE requirements before graduation if you can.
