International student, meet international car.

The International Student Program is the easiest way to acquire a vehicle while studying in the U.S., only from Volvo.

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.

Step 1

Verify your eligibility
Make sure you have your driver’s license, U.S. school enrollment letter, and valid passport from participating countries.*

Step 2

Locate a dealer
Find a dealer near you. If unsure about your local ZIP code, use your university’s.

Step 3

Select your vehicle
Choose any eligible vehicle from current dealer stock.

Step 4

Submit required documentation at the dealer
Once your Volvo Car Financial Services Lease application and eligibility documents are approved, discuss mileage plans and make your one-time payment.

Step 5

Enjoy your new Volvo
Work with your dealer to schedule delivery.

Step 6

Turn in your car
At the end of your term, turn your car into your local Volvo dealer without any hassle.

Program Benefits

One-Time Payment 
You have plenty to worry about, but car payments shouldn’t be one of those things. With One-Time Payment, you make one easy, upfront payment for the duration of the term,** so you only pay for the portion of the car that you use. 

And now Volvo Cars has partnered with Flywire to process international payments through their online payment platform. This partnership allows students to pay in 100 currencies across 220 countries and territories. To make a payment, go to, or visit for more info.

U.S. Credit History Not Required

Being an international student with no credit can be hard. With just a few simple eligibility requirements, this program puts you in the driver’s seat of a new car without having U.S. credit history.

Peace of mind is a wonderful thing, especially while in school. That’s why this program includes standard factory scheduled maintenance.

Simple Vehicle Return at End of Term
Spend your graduation celebrating, not selling your car. Once your lease term ends, just return the car to your nearest Volvo dealer. No hassles.

Drive a Brand New Volvo

Enjoy the new car smell. With a vast selection of eligible vehicles, enjoy all the latest in technology, design, safety and more in a new Volvo.
