College Graduate Incentives

Recently Graduate College?

See How You Can Save on a New Vehicle at Nielsen Ford

For college grads, entering your post-academic life means that you've got plenty of roads and routes in front of you. Whether you've got your degree from Rutgers, Ramapo, Centenary, Drew Caldwell, NJIT or even NYU, Stony Brook, Hofstra and any number of colleges and universities throughout the area, or you've home from being far away out of state, you're going to need a vehicle that can help you get to the places you want to be. Here at Nielsen Ford, we hope we can be part of hat, and for recent grads there's the Ford Drives U program!

I'm a College Grad!


What are the Benefits and Eligibility Requirements for College Grads with Ford Drives U?

The program serves many different drivers including the following:

  • Active college or trade school students who are enrolled full-time or part-time at an accredited four-year college, two-year junior college or community college, or a trade or technical school
  • If you're an active graduate student at an accredited graduate school program
  • You're a recent college graduate from a two- or four-year college or university or an accredited technical or trade school within three years of your graduation date
  • Even high school seniors or recent high school graduates with a letter of intent to attend a qualifying university are eligible and have completed all the requirements can be eligible
  • Those who take part in college internships, trade school apprenticeships, and medical school residencies can qualify if they are currently attending or will attend classes within a timeframe set forth by Ford

That certainly covers lots of bases and allows plenty of people to be eligible for up to $750 in bonus cash off the purchase or lease of a new Ford vehicle. Here at our dealership, we'll need proof of enrollment which you can provide with documentation like a copy of your college or university diploma, final transcript, a letter from the school's registrar's office that states your enrollment within the last six months, or confirming your graduation date, or a current class schedule.

With that added incentive, you can take a look at all our new Ford vehicles from the Focus to the Fusion, Escape, Explorer, Edge and more that are available to you, and discuss your options with our finance team whether leasing for a short term period makes sense for you, or if purchasing the vehicle knowing you're in it for the long haul makes sense depending on your driving habits and where life takes you.

You can learn much more when you contact us here at Nielsen Ford, as our team here in Sussex, NJ would be happy to provide you with all the details you need, answer any questions and help you with the Ford Drives U program today!
