Are you an Undergraduate ACTUARIAL SCIENCE INTEREST Student needing to meet with your advisor?

  • Meet with your advisor at the Advising Center! They are the ones that give you authorization to register.  Be sure you are touching base with your advisor and making those planning and registration appointments!  After you have done this…and have a plan…great!  
  • If your advisor is Ignacio Alvarez (who typically advises our sophomores and juniors), please make an appointment via MYUI!
  • Questions?  Stop into 241 SH (see Margie) OR email actuarial-science@uiowa.edu or statistics@uiowa.edu with your full name and UI number and we can grant you special permission, so when it is your time to add this class you will be able to do so.   (No additional codes will be necessary.)  If for some reason the class is full, we may open spaces for our students on an individual basis (again just stop in our office).


IF you an Undergraduate ACTUARIAL SCIENCE student...and your advisor is not Ignacio Alvarez:
