Applying for VEE Credit


You may apply for VEE candidate credit by clicking on the “Apply online for VEE Credit” buttons on the VEE Home Page. A separate order must be placed for all three VEE topics.

Candidates are required to submit official original transcript(s) from all the institutions listed on the application directly to the VEE Administration Committee. Transcript copies, school grade reports, or unofficial transcripts printed from a university Web site or sent electronically do NOT meet the documentation requirement. All ACTEX and NEAS grade records are sent directly to the SOA; you do not need to submit a transcript if applying for VEE credit using those courses.

All transcripts should be mailed to:

VEE Administration Committee
Society of Actuaries
475 N Martingale Road Suite 600
Schaumburg, IL 60173

All online orders require credit card payment. Paper applications will only be accepted if paying by check.

Only courses and educational experiences that appear in the  VEE Directory of Approved Courses and Alternate Options may be submitted for VEE credit. A grade of B– or better (or the accepted equivalent) is required for each VEE approved course. Candidates may not submit applications for partial credit (e.g., an approved accounting course may not be submitted alone, it must be accompanied on the same application with an approved finance course). Each VEE topic must be applied for individually and all topics do not have to be submitted at the same time.

Two approved courses/options may be combined to complete a VEE topic requirement. For example, an approved accounting course from a university may be combined with an approved finance course from another school or provider. 

If a course doesn’t appear in the VEE Directory of Approved Courses and Alternate Options, you have the option submit a Course Approval Application. Please check the Guidelines for Course Approval to see if the course meets all the necessary requirements before sending in the application.

Once the Candidate Credit order/application is received with payment, the candidate will receive an email confirmation. Once we receive all required transcripts for VEE credit approval, the candidate’s order will be placed in queue to be processed. The typical approval processing time may take up to four weeks, after which the candidate will receive a confirmation email once the VEE credit has been approved.

PLEASE NOTE: During times of high volume, VEE order processing times may increase up to six weeks. It is the candidate’s responsibility to submit orders early enough to allow sufficient time to meet any personal deadlines. We process VEE credit applications in the order received (once all transcripts are received) and will not take requests to expedite orders.
