(Reuters) - Starbucks Corp is expanding its employee college tuition assistance program to cover the entire cost of getting an online bachelor's degree, the chief executive of the coffee chain said on Monday.

The Seattle-based company, known for offering benefits such as healthcare and stock options, launched the "Starbucks College Achievement Plan" with Arizona State University in June 2014. It previously limited the program to juniors and seniors seeking to complete their degrees.
