Transition Credit for Previously Required VEE Topics

VEE Corporate Finance

As of July 1, 2018 Corporate Finance is no longer a required VEE topic. The name has been changed to Accounting and Finance and an accounting component has been added. It is now a two-component requirement with the ability to separately earn Accounting and Finance credit.

Candidates who earn Corporate Finance credit by completing an approved course(s) prior to July 1, 2019 will receive, upon claiming that credit, transition credit for the complete Accounting and Finance requirement. Note that it is not required that the credit be claimed by this date. Candidates who have not earned Corporate Finance credit by July 1, 2019 must earn and claim both the Accounting and Finance requirements of this topic. In line with the general principles of VEE, Accounting courses offered prior to July 1, 2019 can be submitted. If approved, candidates who earned Accounting credit prior to this date can claim it.

VEE Applied Statistics

As of July 1, 2018 Applied Statistics is no longer a required VEE topic. However, Applied Statistics credit earned prior to that date can be claimed at any time. Under the transition rules, such credit then becomes credit for the new VEE Mathematical Statistics and the Statistics for Risk Modeling Exam. Candidates who have not earned this credit prior to July 1, 2018 must pass the Statistics for Risk Modeling Exam and, unless they passed Exam C prior to July 1, 2018, will also be required to complete the VEE Mathematical Statistics requirement.

Please see the VEE transition rules for additional detail regarding VEE Corporate Finance and VEE Applied Statistics.
