Students Save with Ford’s DRIVES-U College Student Purchase Program


Earning a college degree is a great achievement, and at Tom’s Ford, we know it’s a difficult one. Simply finishing your program shows a dedication that’s worth rewarding, and that’s why we are excited to support Ford’s DRIVES-U College Student Purchase Program. Once you have that degree in hand, you’re going to want a new car to take you to your new job, and we want to help by offering you better financing rates.

If your graduation date is between May 1, 2014 and January 2, 2018, you can have access to Tier 0 financing rates at Tom’s Ford!

What is a Tier 0 Rate?

When the average driver applies for financing, they are assigned a “tier” based on their credit rating. A Tier 1 rating is better than a Tier 2 rating, and they are both better than a Tier 3 rating – you’ve got a college degree now, so we think you get the picture. So, what is a Tier 0 rate? Put simply, it’s the best rate we are able to offer.

  • Graduates of 4-year programs receive a guaranteed Tier 0 rating
  • Graduates of 2-year programs receive a guaranteed Tier 1 rating

If you’re a current student in need of a car, don’t fret: you are also entitled to a Tier 1 rating on your new car, making it easy to get to and from your classes.

What Vehicles Can I Choose?

If you’re looking for a catch, you’ll be searching for a while; every new or demo Ford model up to the Ford F-550 is available under the DRIVES-U College Student Purchase Program. Not only are you allowed to pick virtually any vehicle in our new inventory, you can choose between a typical financing agreement where you purchase the car outright or you can lease it.
