College Student Purchase Program

The words “purchase a new car” is something that current college students or recent graduates throw in the back of their mind considering their financial status or predicament. It becomes a goal in the distant future, once all of their loans are paid off or when their current car kicks the bucket. However, there is a way for Newark CA area college students/grads to purchase a used or new Ford vehicle in the present, and that is through our College Student Purchase Program. This programs is a great way for students or graduates to “pick out a ride and then add up the savings!”   

Qualifying and eligible students must meet one of the requirements listed below:

  • Student is currently enrolled full-time OR part-time at an accredited four-year college/university, community college or trade school
  • Student must be enrolled in a minimum of two-classes or an equivalent six credit hours
  • Good academic standing permitted through school guidelines


  • Student has graduated or will graduate between May 1, 2014 through January 4, 2017


  • Student is currently enrolled in an accredited Graduate School Program

Due to the fact that most students or graduates are first-time buyers, the purchasing process can be a bit overwhelming and confusing. With this in mind, our very knowledgeable and seasoned Ford Finance Department is available to help Newark CA area students comprehend the financial terms that go along with a purchase. We work with each individual customer to ensure that all questions are answered and that they understand what the financial stipulations of the purchase are and will be over time. If credit or lack of having credit is a concern, Ford Credit now has program for first-time buyers, college graduates and foreigners on work VISAs that can help build credit for upcoming purchases. Through on-time low monthly car payments, your credit will build up over time, placing you in a better credit standing that will help you out in the future.
