College Automotive Program

Program Costs

All tuition, fees, and textbook costs are the responsibility of the student. These costs are approximately $967 each semester for tuition and $200-$300 each semester for books for the full program. The tuition cost is based on the college's in-state resident tuition rate.

Financial aid is available for students in the CAP Program just as it is for other students at San Juan College. Those students who require financial assistance in order to enroll should contact the Financial Aid Office, (505) 566-3323.Student working in shop

In addition to tuition, fees, and textbook costs, if you do not already have the correct tools you will be required to purchase them. The approximate initial cost of the tool set is $3,000 the first semester, and about $200 a semester thereafter.

It is important to remember that because you will be working during the program, you will be able to earn a considerable portion of the costs of the program during your work periods at your participating dealer.

The CAP program is a very demanding program. In addition to the general education courses that are required for the Associates Degree, you will be learning the technical skills required to be a technician for today's complex automobiles. If you enjoy working with automobiles, appreciate modern technology, and have an interest and desire to excel as a Chrysler service technician, you will feel very much at home in the CAP Program.
