This program is only available to:
Current employees of a public school, private school, university or college.
Eligible Participants are able to sponsor their spouse or same-sex domestic partner (SSDP), where applicable, and dependent children and stepchildren, provided the children are either under 21 years of age or full-time students under 25 years of age on the date of purchase. (Note: Eligible SSDPs are treated the same as spouses and, therefore, their dependent children and stepchildren are also included.)
Participants must present the following, along with a valid authorization number, to a participating GM Dealer in order to purchase or lease under the program:
A copy of the Participant’s valid school ID/badge or a copy of a current (within the last 30 days) pay stub with all information redacted except the date of the pay stub, Participant’s name (payee) and name of the school (payer).
A copy of the Participant’s driver’s license with the driver’s license number redacted.
General Motors will conduct periodic audits to ensure the integrity of The Program. Participants may be asked to furnish documentation supporting their eligibility with these rules. Documentation of Program eligibility may include:
A current paystub
School ID badge
Participants may be asked to furnish documentation supporting the eligibility of sponsored purchasers in compliance with these rules. Documents requested may include, but are not limited to, copies of marriage licenses, birth certificates, registration/title information, etc.
General Motors reserves the right to audit dealership records and disqualify any sales that do not meet The Program guidelines. Any money improperly paid to any party based upon the dealers’ or Participants’ representation shall be charged back accordingly.
Limitation on Number of Vehicles
Participants may purchase or lease a cumulative total of two (2) vehicles under The Program.
Authorization numbers are valid for 90 days toward the purchase or lease of an eligible vehicle at The Program price. To see a list of eligible vehicles, visit gmeducatordiscount.com and select Vehicle Eligibility on the home page. Some models may have limited availability. Eligibility of GM vehicles may change at any time without notice. Participants or Sponsored Purchasers must be eligible to participate throughout the entire purchase process, i.e., on the date the process is started through the date of the vehicle delivery.
If purchasing or leasing a vehicle under The Program with cash or through a loan, ownership must be retained for at least six (6) months from the date of delivery of the vehicle.
GM reserves the right to modify the retention rules at any time. Retention periods for some vehicles may be different than the retention period referenced in previous versions of the Rules and Guidelines.
A vehicle purchased/leased under The Program must be used for the personal, noncommercial use/transportation of the Participant. It is prohibited under The Program to purchase/lease and register/title a vehicle and then surrender the vehicle for part or all of the required retention period to any other person. In addition, it is prohibited under The Program to purchase/ lease a vehicle for commercial use or to title in a business name.
Vehicles purchased under The Program must be registered, licensed, titled, insured and owned by the Participant and/or Sponsored Purchaser. Vehicles may be jointly registered, licensed, titled, insured and/or owned in the Participant’s name and the name of his or her spouse. Vehicles may also be titled in the name of a living trust that bears the name of the Participant.
When it is necessary for finnancial reasons, vehicles may be co-titled in the name of a non-eligible person. In these cases, all of the following requirements apply:
The Participant's name must be the first name listed on the title
The Participant's name must be the first name listed on the registration
The Participant's name must be the first name listed on the financing documents
If any one of these requirements is not met, unless compliance is not possible under state law, the vehicle may not be co-titled in the name of a non-eligible person.
Participants shall not solicit or accept money or discounts from dealers, other persons or other business entities, except GM-sponsored incentives, in connection with the sale of vehicles under The Program. At no time should a Participant accept payment or other consideration from dealers for referrals. Participants may accept inducements of nominal value, up to $50, provided the inducements are offered to the general public and are noncash in nature, such as a free first oil change. This prohibition does not apply to a fuel fill if provided by the dealer at the time of delivery.
Included in required paperwork at the dealership is the GM Vehicle Purchase Customer-Dealer Agreement and Pricing Sheet. This should be reviewed and, once complete, signed by the purchaser. DO NOT SIGN the agreement if it is blank or The Program price from the invoice is not shown. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your purchase or lease, clarify them with your participating dealer BEFORE closing the transaction. The GM Vehicle Purchase Customer-Dealer Agreement and Pricing Sheet must be signed prior to the completion of the deal.
Dealers will be permitted to assess a maximum of $75 in documentation fees, except in these specific instances:
A documentation fee is specified in the applicable state law;
Your dealership charges all customers the same documentation fee (excluding customers purchasing under the GM Employee, Military, Executive Referral and Dealership Employee programs).
If the dealer you visit is not willing to sell you a vehicle through The Program, you may visit another GM Dealer. Dealer participation is voluntary.
Dealers are not required to participate in the GM Educator Discount Program. To determine a dealer’s willingness to sell vehicles under The Program, you must speak with the dealer directly.
During the initial dealer inventory buildup when new models are introduced, and from time to time thereafter, it may be necessary for GM to restrict purchase under The Program on certain models. Please go to gmeducatordiscount.com to see a list of eligible vehicles.
The Program does not constitute an agreement between GM and the Participant for the purchase/lease of any vehicle at a specific price. However, by purchasing a vehicle through The Program, the Participant and the Sponsored Purchaser acknowledge The Program’s Rules and Guidelines and agree to abide by the same program Rules and Guidelines.
Participants are required to report any unauthorized use of authorization numbers immediately. Those who do not report any suspicious or unauthorized use of authorization numbers after they have been submitted on their behalf may be subject to the above sanctions.
Failure to comply with an audit request may subject the Participant to the consequences referenced in the Program Rules section. General Motors has the final decision on all eligibility requirements. The Rules and Guidelines of The Program may be modified by GM at any time, in its sole discretion.
Compliance With Applicable Laws
If any law or regulation is adopted or interpreted which, in GM’s opinion, prohibits or penalizes the implementation of The Program, GM may, in its sole discretion, cancel The Program or any order submitted pursuant to The Program without any further obligation and without any liability to either the dealer or the Participant.
