Actuarial Math Club

Most of the extra-curricular activities associated with the Actuarial Math degree program occur under the auspices of the Pitt Actuarial Math Club – Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS). The Pitt Actuarial Math Club is an organization that is officially sanctioned by the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh as well as the Beta Tau Chapter of GIS by the Society of Actuaries (SOA). All Actuarial Math majors and any student interested in following this course of study should consider becoming a member of the club in order to participate in the club’s scheduled activities as well as to share professional information on a personal level with the members. It is also a great opportunity to get to know many of your classmates. At the end of the Announcements you will find an Archive with links to documents prepared by the student members related to what it means to be an actuary as well as hints for navigating the list of course requirements for the Actuarial Math degree major and receiving accreditation by the SOA.


Some of the officers of GIS made an informational video, Actuarial Math in Math 0500, in January for the Math 0500 class which may be of interest to prospective Actuarial Math majors. The members have also compiled an Actuarial Math Advising Document which may help to resolve logistic questions about academic degree requirements and Society of Actuary exam, credentials, etc. Finally, those interested in fee reimbursement for study materials and successful passing of SOA exams should reach out to Lindsay Miller (
