What's special about the program?

The General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) is a General Motors sponsored automotive service-training program leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree. Students selected for this program must be sponsored by a GM dealership for on-the-job training. Each semester involves a full-time course load with embedded GM factory training and real-world work experiences during the internship period. GM also awards factory-training credits for all program graduates. GM ASEP candidates must apply for admission within the automotive department, which is separate from the College admission process. Entrance into the program is dependant on the candidate’s ability to meet minimum program standards. Prior to sponsoring a student, GM dealerships perform drug testing and various background checks. This process is a dealership policy and is not associated with the College.
