Information on Proctors

For your convenience, we allow either in-person or remote proctoring.

Each student is required to provide us with the name of a proctor who will monitor you while you are taking the exam. The exam will be emailed to the proctor a few days prior to the exam day. The proctor will print it and administer the exam to you on the specified date and time. The proctor will then email the student’s answer sheet back to NEAS.

The final exam for VEE credit should be proctored by an actuary or other professional in the following order:

SOA or CAS Fellow/Associate or an accredited foreign actuary

A manager of a society using professional exams (e.g. CFA, CAM, CPA, CPCU, CLU)

A corporate officer or manager, or a teacher or university instructor

The day of the exam the proctor will administer a two-hour 40-question closed-book final exam beginning at 8:00AM Pacific time, 9:00AM  Mountain time, 10:00AM Central time and 11:00AM Eastern time. Outside of the United States the student will begin their exam at the start of the business day wherever they are located. Microeconomics is given on Monday, Mathematical Statistics on Tuesday, Corporate Finance on Wednesday, Macroeconomics on Thursday, and Financial Accounting on Friday.  

After the exam, the proctor (if proctored in person) or the student (if proctored remotely) will email the student’s answer sheet to NEAS, keeping a copy for his/her records.
