We know tuition and books are expensive. That’s why Ford developed the College Student Purchase Program.
Current college students and recent graduates may be eligible for $500 Bonus Cash1 toward the purchase or lease of an eligible new 2018/2019/2020 Ford vehicle.
In addition, qualified college students may be eligible to receive “Top Tier Credit Approval” when purchasing or leasing through Ford Credit! Yes, that’s correct!
