Governors State University will now offer a four-year degree.

For 42 years, the university has offered junior-level and higher education courses, but now it will expand to a four-year campus, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The freshman class of 2014 will be the first eligible for the new program, which will be limited to 270 students.

The Sun-Timesreports classes will be in a cohort form, meaning the entire freshman class will take the same courses together throughout the four years.

The Kresge Foundation recently gave Governors State a grant to be used for the new four-year program.
