Starbucks is giving its baristas a new job perk.

The coffee giant is offering tuition reimbursement to both full and part-time employees working their way through college.

Starbucks is partnering up with Arizona State University’s online studies program.

The new benefit will cover two full years of Internet courses at ASU.

Starbucks says it isn’t sure how much the program will cost but a spokesman estimated the benefit to equal about $30,000 per employee.

Most of the company’s 135,000 employees are eligible and they don’t have to remain with Starbucks after getting their degree.
