Starbucks ISN’T Paying For Their Employees College Education After All? Then Who Is??

starbucks college achievement plan not actual scholarship

So, working at Starbucks is still awesome, but not quite as awesome as we thought!

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the coffee company was teaming up with Arizona State University to pay part of their employee’s tuition, but that’s not actually the case.

Now Starbucks is calling the scholarship “an investment,” but students won’t actually get any money from the company. Instead, they’ll just attend college online at a discounted price, with federal aid making up much of the difference, since most employees don't make very much money.

So, basically, Starbucks estimates that for freshmen and sophomores, the employees will end up paying around $1,000 a year. Juniors and Seniors are estimated to pay nothing out-of-pocket as long as they have 21 credits completed.

This is still fantastic, but more confusing than we originally thought. But everyone is still getting their college education paid for! Yay!

    I'm disgusted that sbux would funnel money to one of these online rip off schools.

    Re: H – they aren't funneling any money. they aren't doing a fucking thing, which is where the bullshit lay. they are posing as if they have something to do with paying for the tuition. they dont. they probably fill out an electronic form (1.2 nanoseconds) for federal aid and then claim they are assisting the employee. it's almost criminal. anyway…fyi asu is a fully accredited university

    Geez when I went to college half the fun was attending classes in person and meeting other people, joining clubs if you want, hanging in the Student Union, etc. Online classes sound really boring.

    Great, now the taxpayer is paying because Starbucks can´t be f**ked to pay proper wages so that employees can pay tuition for themselves?
