    Disney College Program

    I have a question about the college program my phone interview is tomorrow and I was a little confused. If I get the job I would be in the program from January to August and I was wondering how I would factor college in all that? Since it said I will have to be flexible at any time and I was wondering if I had to miss school, do the program, then go back to school afterwards? If anyone could elaborate that would be amazing.

    You have to meet with your advisor at school to see if you can have credits transferred from Disney University to your college. And yes you take a semester off from your school, go to Disney, take classes and work and then return to school after.

    The above is correct. you and your school have to work out a deal. I, personally, had to withdraw from school and returned to it afterwards. All schools are different. Good luck!

    agree with the previous posts.

    I got lucky! I went to the College Program in Entertainment. I was a theatre major. The department chair let me get "independent study" credits by just keeping a journal of how I used movement. Then wrote a paper on what I learned.

    I also too a "Marketing U" class that Disney offered. That didnt transfer as credits towards my degree, but I did learn a lot!

    Hope this helps!

    I got credits for the Disney classes and I must say, if you can, Take them! They are the BEST and the cheapest college classes you'll ever take!
