Disney Programs is recommended for academic credit through the American Council on Education. This program connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside of the traditional classroom. Learn more about the American Council on Education’s Credit.
You may be able to earn credit for participating in the program, and we encourage you to talk with your academic advisor about what options would be available for earning credit.
It is important to note that all credit decisions are at the full and final discretion of your college/university, as Disney Programs cannot grant, guarantee or otherwise award any form of credit.
Talk to your advisor about credit options for your participation in the program. Students usually earn college credit during the Disney College Program in one of two ways:
- Many departments within a college or university have internship courses that allow you to earn credit for internship experiences. Although they often require you to be a junior or senior, our program may meet the requirements for your major's internship course.
- Many schools offer online coursework, independent study or distance-learning options. Dedicated study time is available for those participants taking online classes, called Independent Study Hall. To learn more about this, please visit our Support Site (What is Independent Study Hall and How Do I Enroll?).
