There’s a new opportunity brewing at Starbucks! That’s right! Starbucks employees nationwide will now have the opportunity for a free college education through Arizona State University’s online program starting this fall.

According to USAToday, this new initiative will allow many of Starbucks’ 135,000 employees to graduate debt free from ASU with no requirement to repay or stay on with the company.  With this program, Starbucks employees who work at least 20 hours a week will receive full tuition reimbursement if they enroll in ASU’s online program as juniors or seniors. Others will be able to apply for scholarships worth $6,500, on average, if they enroll as freshmen or sophomores in ASU’s online program.

The Starbucks College Achievement Plan, as it is called, will be funded by the partnership of Arizona State University and Starbucks. In a phone interview, ASU President Michael Crow said the partnership is a way to help students across the country graduate from college without debt.

“Starbucks decided human capital is one of the most important things they can invest in,” Crow said. “Everybody is concerned about what are the ways to get through college.”
