A little known fact, but if you are studying at Arizona State University, or at University of Arizona, and you are not a USA resident. Volvo has a solution to get you a vehicle for the time that you study abroad here in the USA. In fact the international Student Program is known as the easiest way to acquire a vehicle while studying in the USA, and is only offered from Volvo. So let Courtesy Volvo of Scottsdale help you get into a International car for an International Student.

One-Time Payment

Volvo is proud to introduce the International Student Program. Instead of purchasing a car outright, you’ll make one easy, upfront payment and drive a brand new Volvo during the time you’re in school. After you graduate, you’ll be able to drop the car off at your local Volvo dealer. No hassles. You’ll only pay for the portion of the car you use. It’s as simple as that.

International Driver’s License or equivalent: States will accept international and/or foreign driver’s licenses when accompanied by a valid passport document. The foreign student driver should however be required to also secure a valid International Drivers Permit from their home country before coming to U.S. as an additional form of validation. The foreign student does however bear the responsibility of verifying state specific DMV guidelines as to duration these documents will suffice as valid forms in compliance with their specific state. If required by local state jurisdiction they need to engage with the DMV to secure a local state of residence license. The students “Designated School Official” that would validate their enrollment in a qualified institution for Visa purposes would be their source guide for local compliance with DMV any many other areas dealing with living in U.S. and maintaining Visa compliance.

Proof of college enrollment status and date enrolled: The Dept. of Homeland Security guidelines for those in this country on student Visa’s is to maintain a valid Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) filing, which is their sponsoring educational institution’s “Designated School Official” entering the students compliance with enrollment etc. in the SEVIS system.
