No Refunds

Preliminary Actuarial Exams/SOA does not offer refunds for its examinations. No part of a fee paid to the PAE/SOA for examination registration will be refunded or transferred to a later exam period should the candidate not appear for the exam.

PAE /SOA recognizes that unforeseen emergencies may occur that directly influence a candidate’s ability to take an exam on an appointed day and will consider these situations on a case–by–case basis.

  • You may reschedule your appointment. Because computer-based exams are administered over several days, you will continue to have the option to reschedule your test appointment within the same testing window provided the request is made by noon of the second business day before the scheduled appointment, and also provided there is a seat available. To reschedule a CBT appointment, you must follow the directions provided in the Cancelling or changing an appointment section.
  • If you find yourself in an emergency situation, contact SOA Customer Service at customerservice@soa.org.
