LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Uber is launching an Uber Pro program for drivers within the Las Vegas area.

This beta, first-of-its-kind, program is designed to recognize and reward the contribution of the company’s most dedicated driver partners, according to an Uber spokesperson.

The program, in partnership with Arizona State University, will offer the opportunity for drivers to complete courses toward an undergraduate degree with ASU online.

These "pro" drivers have low cancellation rates, a minimum 4.85 rating with at least 3,000 completed lifetime trips.

Uber Pro drivers may choose from over 80 undergraduate degrees, language courses, or receive a certificate in entrepreneurship with all of the tuition covered, according to the company.
