Program Notes
 This is a fivelevel (year) coop program which includes two eightmonth work terms which must be spent in actuarial and financial mathematics related placements.
 Students must be registered fulltime and take a full academic workload, as prescribed by Level and Term.
 Students are required to complete SCIENCE 2C00 prior to the Fall Term of Level III. Students are required to complete SCIENCE 3C00 before the first work placement.
 Students interested in focusing on ﬁnancial mathematics are strongly encouraged to complete MATH 2XX3 , 3FF3 and one of COMPSCI 1MD3 , MATH 1MP3 or 3NA3 . Students should note that MATH 2X03 is a prerequisite for MATH 2XX3 and that MATH 2R03 is a prerequisite for MATH 3FF3 .
 Students must complete STATS 4A03 or COMMERCE 2FB3 (or COMMERCE 3FA3).
 Students should take COMMERCE 1AA3 and COMMERCE 2FA3 by the end of Level II, to enable completion of COMMERCE 2FB3 (or COMMERCE 3FA3) in a Fall Term of Level III or IV.
