Uber announces new program to help Texas drivers complete their college degree

If you are an Uber driver with a gold, platinum or diamond rating, you may qualify for free college courses online from Arizona State University.

Uber announced an expansion to its Uber Pro beta program Thursday to help Texas drivers earn college credit through a partnership with Arizona State University. 

Qualified drivers can take advantage of 100% free tuition on all bachelor's degrees delivered through ASU Online. 

However, if you are a driver and aren't interested in taking the courses, you can pass your eligibility to a close family member like a child, parent or spouse.

Uber's program is currently available in 30 cities around the U.S. and internationally.
