Default U of T Act Sci Specialist, come here please!!!

I have a question about the program:

4. Students in the Actuarial Science Specialist program who have successfully completed ACT348H1 may be eligible to enrol in the following RSM courses (provided the appropriate prerequisites and co-requisites are met): RSM430H1, RSM433H1, RSM437H1

For the Specialist program, is it mandatory for you to take RSM430, 433, 437, i.e. are they mandatory/required courses or just recommended?

Thanks,

Do they have an academic advisor for the program or dean or something?

You'll do much better finding their phone number and calling them.

I moved this question out of the General Actuarial area. However, if I chose the wrong campus, please move it to the other one.

perhaps you should get a registration calendar or look at any of the official act sci websites. It states very clearly almost everywhere that they are only if you wish to take them. Not even recommended.
