Help support the next generation of Ball State Actuaries!
Ball State has a long tradition of reimbursing the first exam pass for Actuarial Science students, but we are now hoping to expand the program's support. That is where you come in.
Students are now expected to have at least 2 exams upon graduation!
Actuaries must complete a long and rigorous series of exams to become fully credentialed. As the profession has grown among college students, employers now expect students to have passed at least 2 exams upon graduating, if not more! Ball State's Actuarial Science Program currently reimburses 1 exam per student, but students must cover the cost of additional exams on their own. The actuarial faculty, in partnership with BSU's Actuarial Science Advisory Board, would like to support a minimum of 2 exams per student going forward.
What are some benefits to students?
We know from emerging research that a few hundred dollars can be a large barrier to entry to the profession. Expanding exam reimbursement lowers the barrier and helps create more equitable opportunities for all students.
Actuarial exams are difficult with a 50% or less pass rate. This exam reimbursement is a small reward for the hard work of the students and sets them up for more success after graduation.
What are some benefits to Ball State?
Exam Reimbursement is offered at competing universities. Expanding our support at Ball State helps keep our program competitive and attract strong actuarial talent.
More student success translates to better placement rates for interns and full-time graduates, which will strengthen relationships with corporate partners.
