AGRICULTURE EDUCATION



Agriculture is the number one industry in both North Dakota and the United States. Whether you live in the city or on the farm, you need to develop agricultural skills to compete in and to enter the work force. A background in agriculture is beneficial since nearly 20% of the nation's work force is in an agricultural related career. Students can take courses and develop skills in agriculture education through "hands-on" work in the lab and classroom. Leadership skills and competencies are developed and expanded through FFA, supervised agricultural experience programs and business placement programs.

CARS STUDENT LOAN REPAYMENT PROGRAM


CARS (College Annual Repayment Stipend)
is a student loan repayment program in which Automotive Technology students could have up to $20,000 of their student loans paid for them.

Here's how it works . . . First, the student meets with a participating dealer to discuss potential job opportunities. The student learns about the dealership and job positions by talking to the dealer, touring the dealership, visiting with dealership staff, and asking questions. The dealer will discuss with the student the type of education that would be most appropriate for the position being sought by the student. This would include identifying a major and an approved institution offering that major. The next step is for the student to enroll in school and begin a course of study. The student is fully responsible for acquiring adequate funding for both their degree and personal needs. This funding is usually obtained through the college financial aid office. Upon graduation, the student can apply for employment with participating dealerships. If the student is hired by a participating dealership, the student may be entitled to participate in the CARS student load repayment program. At the end of the student's first year of full-time employment, the dealership will make a $1,500 payment to the financial institution holding eh student's loan. Provided the student continues to work for the dealership, this process will continue for 9 additional years. However, at the end of years 6 through 10, the student loan payment increases to $2,500 per year! This adds up to $20,000 in payments.
