Four-Year Graduation Plan

The following checkpoints list the minimum requirements students must complete by certain semesters in order to stay on the University's Four-Year Graduation Plan. Courses in the major are those required to complete the major; they may be offered by departments other than the major department.

Much of the course work is sequential, so students must begin requirements for the major as soon as possible. Individual study plans must be made carefully. Students who first enroll for a spring semester must consult their advisor to confirm a four-year plan.

  • Before the third semester begins: MATH:1860 Calculus II and MATH:2700 Introduction to Linear Algebra 
  • Before the fifth semester begins: MATH:2850 Calculus III, MATH:3770 Fundamental Properties of Spaces and Functions I, STAT:3100 / IGPI:3100 Introduction to Mathematical Statistics I, STAT:3101 / IGPI:3101 Introduction to Mathematical Statistics II, and ACTS:3080 Mathematics of Finance I 
  • Before the seventh semester begins: STAT:4101 / IGPI:4101 Mathematical Statistics II, ACTS:4130 Quantitative Methods for Actuaries, ACTS:4180 Life Contingencies I, ACTS:4150 Fundamentals of Short Term Mathematics and at least 90 s.h. earned toward the degree
  • Before the eighth semester begins: ACTS:4280 Life Contingencies II 
  • During the eighth semester: enrollment in all remaining course work in the major, all remaining GE CLAS Core courses, and a sufficient number of semester hours to graduate

Sample plans represent one way to complete a program of study. Actual course selection and sequence will vary and should be discussed with an academic advisor. For additional sample plans, see MyUI
