Volkswagen College Graduate Program

Volkswagen College Graduate Program Glenview, IL

“Don’t trip...don’t trip….don’t trip...wait...which side do I flip the tassel to again?” Your name is announced. You cross the center stage. You shake hands with the chancellor, and just like that, in a blur, you’ve graduated and a new chapter of your life begins. After semesters of hard work, a few missed lectures here and there, and cafeteria food you just might miss some day, it’s time to enter the “real world.”

Volkswagen realizes the need for an independent and reliable means of transportation but also understands the importance of staying within the confines of your budget. Throughout the Volkswagen College Graduate Program in Glenview, IL, there are a number of options to getting your first vehicle. Everyone’s situation is unique, but the important thing is that you make the best possible decision for you.

Volkswagen will give you a $500 a rebate toward the purchase (or lease) of a new vehicle. New and pre-owned Volkswagen inventories can be seen online, and drivers are always welcome to come in for a test drive. Once the vehicle is paid off, it’s entirely yours. No payments ever again!

Not sure where life will lead you within the next couple of years? Rather than committing to the purchase of a vehicle, try leasing for two or three years. Even better yet, there won’t be a security deposit and our rates are always competitive so that you can count on getting the best deal possible.

VW College Graduate Program Highlights and Qualifications

Graduating college is no easy feat and isn’t something that should just be overlooked. Volkswagen believes that college graduation is an achievement worth rewarding and that’s why when you buy or lease through Volkswagen Credit, Volkswagen will give you a $500 rebate toward the purchase (or lease) of a new vehicle. Also, if you do choose to lease, there is no security deposit required.

As a college student, you more than likely haven’t had the time or opportunity to build up and establish credit; therefore, a credit history is not required. Drivers who do have an existing credit score will need to be in good standing though. Also, one other bonus to the program is that you won’t have to worry about finding a cosigner, one is not necessary.
