Millennials were mixed in their reaction to this week's announcement that Starbucks will now pay for up to four years of college for employees that attend Arizona State University online.

The full-tuition program is available for Starbucks employees who work for the coffee giant at least 20 hours per week, and the employees can only take classes through ASU's online program.

The original plan, which Starbucks started in 2014, only covered employees for their junior and senior years.

When USA Today asked its Twitter followers if they would take advantage of Starbucks' free-tuition plan if it "existed while you were in high school," the paper got a mostly positive response.

Not all were favorable, though. SniperPranks called the offer "lame" and mocked it for being limited to one university's online program.
