The ASPF is intended to financially support students who take actuarial exams and, hopefully, also help with study material and possibly extracurricular activities, such as job shadows, program related activities, etc. The priorities were set as follows:
Priority 1. Use to reimburse students for their actuarial exam fees.
Priority 2. If priority 1 is being met, then use to fund exam study material for student actuarial exams, written or electronic.
Priority 3. If priority 1 and priority 2 are being met, then use to fund other activities or matters that will improve or enhance the actuarial science student educational experience at Appalachian.
The details as to how the exams reimbursement is intended to work is as follows:
The first priority of the Actuarial Science Program Fund is to reimburse actuarial science students for their professional actuarial exam fees while they are an Appalachian State student. To serve this purpose, the intent is to reimburse 100% of the exam fee if the student passes the exam on the first attempt and 50% of the exam fee if the student does not pass the first attempt. For the second attempt the intent is to reimburse 50% of the exam fee if the student passes the exam on the second attempt and no reimbursement of the exam fee if the student does not pass the exam on the second attempt.
Thanks to the graduates and friends of the program, we have enough funding to begin exam reimbursement. However, the student needs to register for the exam in the mathematics office, i.e. contact Kevin Shirley, 323 Walker Hall or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please direct questions about the ASPF to the same email.
