    Question Quick Questions

    Hey everyone,

    As many of you know that I am a senior in HS and I was wondering when can I apply to the WDWCP? I am going to a local college (Purdue Calument) will they come to this school or do they only go to major colleges?

    Thanks for your help!

    This thread covers some of the questions you asked.

    From that, Joanna points out:

    *To be in good standing with your school (usually this means a 2.0 GPA).
    *And to have a good personal record.

    That's it!

    If you are going to do the CP, you just need to complete 1 semester in a college/university and be 18+ years old.

    Disney doesn't go to every school. But they do go to colleges/universities/CC. The list can be found here: Disney College Program- Presentation Schedule
    (it's not currently up for the Fall 2009 CP yet).

    disneyfanatic101,

    not sure if you would want to take a semester off before you go to college, but another option for you would be... the CareerStart Program, which is for people who graduate high school but haven't started college. So if this sounds like something that you would like to do here is the link:
    The Disney CareerStart Program


    Not sure if this is something that you want to do, but this is another option for you!!
