The SOA listing of Universities and Colleges with Actuarial Programs (UCAP) serves as a resource for students looking for a university/college actuarial program. The information provided for the schools on the UCAP list has undergone some review by the SOA, but should be verified by the student considering the program. The UCAP list includes actuarial programs that meet the following requirements:
- Maintain course coverage for at least two actuarial exams
- Have approved courses for at least one VEE (Validation by Educational Experience) topic
