New young professionals should check out the Audi College Graduate Program!

It's that time of year at Audi Burlingame where we start seeing an influx in young shoppers at our Burlingame dealership, and that's all thanks to recent college graduations! Because this next generation of young professionals needs a way to get into the office, and many of them graduated from great schools and have solid starting paychecks, it's easy to see why they've turned to the Audi lineup. Plus, if you must deal with San Francisco traffic, you might as well be sitting in a stunning and well-equipped Audi cabin!

Lucky for them, they can take advantage of the Audi College Graduate Program and have a little financial assistance getting into their Audi lease or purchase. Eligibility is as follows:

  • Shoppers must have graduated in the last 24 months (or within 6 months)
  • They must be a U.S. Citizen or have permanent resident status
  • They must have gotten a degree from an accredited 2- or 4-year US or Canadian institute
  • Buyers or lessees must have a Bachelor's, Masters', Doctorate, or Nursing RN/LP. Associate's degrees also count
  • Shoppers must prove they have a full-time job that is permanent or show written confirmation from an employer
  • After going through the financing process, they must prove that the monthly payment isn't more than 25% of the gross monthly income

If you meet all the requirements and are eager to commute into the city from Palo Alto or San Mateo in a new Audi, bring the following into our dealership:

  • A valid driver's license
  • Proof that you have insurance, as well as an agent's contact information
  • Contact information from you school and either your degree or transcript
  • Paperwork that proves employment, income, and a contact through HR or payroll
  • Addresses and phone numbers for two U.S.-residing references that Audi can contact

FAQ from College Graduate Shoppers

Should I purchase or lease? There are a few factors to consider in the buy vs lease debate. However, leases have lower monthly payments than purchasing, which might be a better choice. Even if you have a great starting salary, having extra money to build a nest egg is never a bad idea.

What is a good new Audi model? There are a few model limitations for the Audi College Graduate Program, but most are available. Entry-level options include the Audi A3 sedan or the Audi Q3 crossover. We also have many Audi Q5 SUVS in stock, in case you need more cargo room.

For more information on the Audi College Graduate Program, or to move forward with the shopping process, stop into our dealership this week for a test drive. We're excited to help you commemorate your first steps into this next chapter of your life, and with a new Audi you'll certainly enter this new phase in undeniable style.
