Starbucks Course Mapping

Starbucks partners can earn college credit for their Starbucks training courses. Strayer University recognizes that learning doesn’t only happen in the classroom. Many of our students enroll with the equivalent of college level credit through learning that they have gained at other institutions, in their professions, or through other life experiences.  We recognize the many ways that you have learned to ensure that you are given the credit you deserve toward your degree. This credit will help you complete your degree program as quickly and efficiently as possible. Earn credit towards your degree at Strayer University for your Starbucks training courses by completing the form found here.
