Examination and Study Kit Fee Discount Program


The Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) Board of Directors and the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Board of Governors are pleased to offer a measure designed to provide financial relief to eligible candidates of qualified countries. The Examination and Study Kit Fee Discount Program began in January 2001.

There are two versions of the program:

  • Joint CAS/SOA Fee Discount Program for Exam 1/P, 2/FM, 3F/MFE and 4/C
    Although the SOA will process all applications for joint CAS/SOA Preliminary Actuarial Exams 1/P, 2/FM, 3F/MFE and 4/C, the CAS will finance the program for any eligible property/casualty candidates writing these examinations. The SOA maintains a similar program for its examinations that are not offered jointly with the CAS. Candidates who are not specializing in the property/casualty or general insurance practice may direct any inquiries about fee discounts on the SOA upper-level examinations to at the SOA.

  • CAS Fee Discount Program for Exams 3L and 5-9
    The eligibility requirements are the same for both discount programs, but the CAS version includes additional countries in its eligibility list and has a tiered discount structure.
