The General Motors ASEP Program is a collaborative effort between MassBay Community College and General Motors. The College retains academic and administrative responsibility for the program and is certified by the ASE Education Foundation in all eight performance areas.
Upon completion, the Associate in Science Degree in Automotive Technology with a concentration in General Motors is awarded.
