Cooperative Master’s program in Accounting: Accounting majors may participate in our five-year cooperative program with the graduate school at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. After four years at Greenville, qualifying students receive a bachelor of science degree and transfer immediately to the School of Accountancy at nearby SIU-E. Students automatically receive advanced placement in the master of science in accountancy program, which they can expect to complete in two semesters and two summers (or three semesters). Graduates holding this master’s degree fully qualify to sit for the CPA examinations. Continuing financial aid may be available for the entire five years.
