Arizona State University (ASU) is participating in a new effort to increase the number of students who complete their degrees.

The Starbucks College Achievement Plan, a joint effort of ASU and Starbucks, will allow thousands of eligible Starbucks employees to enroll, with partial or full financial support from Starbucks, in any of ASU’s 40 online bachelor’s degree programs. Engineering, business, and education programs are among the offerings available.

ASU also will support the needs of these students by providing an academic advisor, financial aid counselor and networking opportunities, among other services and resources that aim to ensure a high retention and completion rate.

ASU is among a number of institutions that are working to reduce the hurdles to a quality higher education.
