Trend Setter: FCA Becomes First Automaker To Offer Free Tuition To Dealership Employees

In an unprecedented move, FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) is teaming up with Strayer university to offer dealership employees can earn a tuition-free education. FCA is the first automaker in the industry to truly make a huge commitment to investing in their employees and not just giving lip service as it relates to education. By providing a free post-secondary education, this is the best means of attracting, retaining and reducing high turnover at the dealership level.

Here are a few of the highlights:
  • FCA US teams with Strayer University to develop first-of-its-kind dealer program
  • Degrees@Work program open to all employees of participating dealerships
  • Employees can earn no-cost, no-debt degree through Strayer University
  • Offering associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees 
  • All Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram and FIAT dealerships may participate
  • First phase of program rollout begins with dealers in the FCA US Southeast Business Center (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee may now offer their employees the opportunity to enroll in online and on-campus degree programs for summer and fall terms)
  • National rollout expected later this year
