Our education program is designed to give participants a comprehensive, experiential-learning opportunity which will provide them an unparalleled enhancement to their academic and professional careers. Participants in Disney's Internships & Programs will be able to design a learning experience which will shape their program experience into an opportunity that specifically suits their needs and interests.
Participants' ability to guide their learning is what makes Disney's Internships & Programs more than just a work opportunity. While on the Program, participants choose from multiple educational opportunities to incorporate into their program to enhance their experience.
As part of their learning experience, participants can take several different types of Disney Education Courses, some of which are recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). Based upon each participant's program location and program length, will depend upon which classes may be available. Specifically:
At the Disneyland ® Resort, education participation is required. At the Walt Disney World® Resort, we require that students meet any criteria for participation that their school may have. Students should also talk with a faculty or career services advisor to ensure they meet their school's requirements for participation in our program, as well as options for earning college credit during their experience.

Tuition, Text Books & Course Materials
Disney does not charge tuition for these education offerings; however, participants are responsible for purchasing textbooks and paying applicable course materials fees.
Participants should check with an academic advisor to determine if they will be charged tuition for course credit earned while participating in the Disney College Program.
Participants will be responsible for purchasing their textbooks and course materials. Please see the course syllabi for the required titles, including the ISBN numbers. We recommend exploring local college bookstores or searching by ISBN numbers at any online vendor. Another option would be to check the book publisher's online website.
The current course materials cost and approximate textbook prices for the Disney Education courses ranges from $10 to $30 per course. All of these costs are subject to change.
