Dear Bhavya,

Greetings from Hotcourses India.

You may go for bachelor in Actuarial Science with Commerce background. Please note that you need to have a strong score in Math. Along with it, US universities need SAT and TOEFL/IELTS score.

Hope the above clarifies.

Thanks & Regards,

Hotcourses India

Hi Bhavya,

Yes you may apply for bachelors in actuarial science however you might have to take some prerequisite courses. Refer this link for same .

 Only few universities and quite a few programs accept students from different academic program. If you are into 11th standard this year, it’s early to think about applying to the universities. You should start preparation for SAT and TOEFL this year and mid of next year is when the application deadlines starts. You can get in touch with me on if you have more queries.
