SOA - Examination and Other Requirement Details

Fall 2007 Basic Education Catalog

Ticket of Admission

Beginning with the Fall 2007 exam administration your Acknowledgement Letter will serve as your Ticket of Admission. This will be e-mailed to you automatically once your application has been processed and it will include your candidate number and your exam center number. No other Ticket of Admission will be e-mailed or mailed to you. The Acknowledgement Letter/Ticket of Admission serves as your receipt. E-mailed Acknowledgement Letters/Tickets of Admission should be printed and used for admittance into the exam, along with proper identification.

CBT, Computer-Based Testing, Exam P only:

For CBT Exam P candidates the candidate/eligibility number included on the automated acknowledgement will NOT be activated immediately. Once the number has been activated, SOA will e-mail a Letter of Confirmation which will explain the scheduling process. Please wait for this Letter of Confirmation before attempting to schedule your appointment with Thomson Prometric.

Applications are processed in the order they are received. It may take a few weeks to enter your application due to the volume of applications being received.

If you have not received or have misplaced your Acknowledgement Letter/Ticket of Admission, you can reprint one from our Exam Registration Page. Or contact for assistance.
