Sigma Chapter's 2013-2014 Professional Exam Passers



For students in the Risk Management and Actuarial Science fields, passing exams given by professional societies is of critical importance to their professional development. The Sigma Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma encourages our members to take these professional exams while still in college. These rigorous exams are given by various educational organizations in the Risk Management and Actuarial Science fields, and the Sigma Chapter is proud of our members who have completed this difficult task. These include exams for the CEBS, CPCU and ARM designations, as well as actuarial exams sponsored by the Society of Actuaries. The following is a list of the recent exams passed by our members, as well as a brief overview of what that exam entails.

Each category lists members who passed an exam from the beginning of summer until the end of the academic year. For lists of Professional Exam Passers from previous academic years, click below.
