Arizona State University accepts 1,800 Starbucks employees

Since Starbucks announced its partnership with Arizona State University, the school has accepted 1,800 of the coffee giant’s employees as students.

Earlier this year, Starbucks announced it would reimburse employees who took their junior and senior years through ASU’s online program.

The university said the admitted Starbucks employees are scattered across its 40 degree programs. About 70 percent of the students will be covered by the tuition reimbursement plan.

The university previously reported 4,000 Starbucks employees applied to the university.
