Joe Cotton Ford College Graduate Program Rebate

Are you a current college student or a recent college graduate? Are you ready to purchase a new Ford? If so, you may qualify for the Ford College Student or Graduate Program, at Joe Cotton Ford, in Carol Stream, IL. 

We know tuition and books are expensive. That's why Ford developed the College Student Purchase Program. College students and recent graduates are eligible for a $500 incentive, plus great rates through Ford Credit when you purchase or lease a new Ford vehicle.

Ford Division is announcing 2020 College Student Purchase Program, effective January 3, 2020, for ALL full-time and part-time college students (Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors), recent college or trade school graduates and current graduate school students.

-Effective June 20, 2018, the following changes will be made to the 2018 College Student Purchase Program:

The Ford College Student Purchase Program provides eligible college students and recent graduates with bonus cash, plus great rates through Ford Credit when they purchase or lease a new Ford vehicle.

Also effective for all program sales after June 20, 2018, the process to verify student/recent graduate eligibility will be managed though customer registration via ID.me (similar to the Ford Military appreciation and the First Responder programs.) All customers should be directed to www.FordDrivesU.com to apply for this offer. This enrollment will no longer be processed by the dealerships and should be directed back to the College Student to complete.

Great experience from beginning to end. On their Website, I saw one of their Internet specials advertised, so I went in, set up a test drive, asked my questions, set up financing, and -- only around 3 hours after I'd walked in -- drove away with my new car. The purchase went quickly and efficiently.

I went in for my 6 month check up as required for my maintenance package. Quite some time passed and I remembered that I needed new wiper blades. I went back and asked if that could be added and my service guy just smiled and added it. It was all covered in my plan. I'm bad at getting names but I have had nothing but great experiences in the dealership and service department. Highly recommend them. Not everyone is perfect, nor does everyone have a good day everyday. I have read the bad reviews and am thankful I have not had the same experiences. Keep up the good work and get these reviews up! 5 star for this household!

I have been servicing my 07 Navigator L at Cotton since I bought it new. Great service still going strong. Wouldn't take it anywhere else! Service manager Davy Malloy is one of the main reasons that I still service my Ford and Lincoln vehicles at Cotton. Great attention to detail.
