Student Accounting Society


The Student Accounting Society (SAS) is a UIS registered student organization (RSO) that bridges accounting students with the accounting world. SAS offers not only guidance and support, but friendships and networks as well. We provide course insight, help with preparing for the CPA exam, and resources to find internships and career opportunities. It also serves as a vehicle for providing feedback to faculty and the Accountancy program. For the most up-to-date information about what’s happening check out the UIS Department of Accounting, Economics, and Finance Facebook page!
