Automotive Department Advising

Updated May 2009


Program information l.jpg

The Automotive program offers two degrees:

  • B.S. or a Bachelors of Science in Automotive Technology Management program # 411.

  • A.A.S. or an Associate of Applied Science in Automotive Technology” program # 346


Scholarship info l.jpg

Scholarship info

Our web site lists all scholarship and grant information we have access to… click on the “Financial” box. There you will see:

1. University scholarship and grant applications. There are no ‘Automotive Scholarships’.

2. Industry scholarship links

There is one more type of scholarship available. It is known as the ASE Scholarship. To earn this you’ll need to sign-up and pass up to nine ASE exams. These tests are offered twice a year by ASE. You’ll hear more about ASE as you continue taking classes in the program.

You’ll be awarded $50 for each test passed… up to $450 in all. As you progressively pass these tests, simply show a copy of your scores to our secretaries in Austin 106.

*If you are receiving university scholarship money that equals full tuition amount, you cannot qualify for any more than that amount. This is university policy


Byu i gpa scholarships l.jpg

BYU-I GPA scholarships

As you may already know, the university awards scholarship money based upon GPA. Here are the requirements:

Soph: Full = 3.9 ½ = 3.8 ¼ = 3.7

Jr: Full = 3.85½ = 3.75 ¼ = 3.65

Sr: Full = 3.8½ = 3.7 ¼ = 3.6

*This applies after 30 credits have been earned

*This money automatically shows up in your BYU- Idaho account / no paper work.


Specific program info l.jpg

Specific program Info

  • Do not take Comm 399, B 398 & B 101.

    *These classes are NOT required for a degree in automotive.

  • A 298 and A 398 are internship experiences. *Only one internship is required for graduation.

  • Math 221, Acct 180, CIT 140 and Econ 112 are prerequisites to the IBC

    *The IBC is a group of business classes that add up to 12 credits in all. These are all taken in the same semester.

    The IBC is a bit of an intense experience. It is highly recommended that you take a simple type of class at the same time… say a 2 two credit religion class in order to maintain 14 credits – qualifying for university scholarship monies. The IBC will keep you busy.

Job search tip from a program graduate l.jpg

Job search tip from a program graduate

“…I have visited with Eakas (the company I will be working for) and they seem excited to have me start. I will start work the 2nd of july and will keep you informed. I wanted to send you a few of the resources I used in finding job openings. From what I can tell every state has a job search website, for example Arkansasjobs.com. I would just visit these sites and search for jobs with keywords like Automotive, and management. I had interviews with Goodyear, Bridgestone/firestone, and couple of big dealerships from searches. Monster.com, and Google/jobs also turn up lots of job openings for our degrees. I will be getting a company email and everything next week. So I'll be sure and send it to you. Thanks again Brother Spratling, I'll talk to you soon. “

Job search tip from a program graduate

I am not sure if you had received my message from about a week ago, but I found employment with Hatch Motor Co at their Ford Dealership as a service advisor. They sell many different types of vehicles and they even do motorsports sales and services and they are all over AZ, all there dealerships are LDS owned and run and they have many locations throughout the state of AZ. If anyone is interrested in opportunities in AZ with Hatch Motor Co they should check out our web site at hatchmotorco.com. My boss was suprised and thrilled at the same time to learn that there is actually a degree in automotive management, and that there was something that actually educated students on how to do his job. So tell everyone that there is no reason to be discouraged because there is still a lot of opportunity out there.

Thanks again for all that you have done over the years to make the program what it is. This is just a thought but maybe there could be a class that helps prepare you better for a service advisor/writer position as part of the management program for our major, but that is just a thought.

Have a great day.
