Now.....she is in limbo! Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone experience this type of problem before?
If she really wants to do the program, tell her to do it. My college told me the program was a scam because they had never heard of it and that I shouldn't do it when I went to see if I could get any type of credit for it. I told them to have fun sitting behind a desk dealing with grumpy students, I was going to Disney World for 7 months. There are classes she can take that may help her case with the school.

I sent you a private message with my daughter's blog. I think you will find it helpful!

Thank you everyone for your comments! My daughter heard back from Disney today and they were able to change her role from lifeguard to attractions because of FGCU's requirement!

Wow! That's great, but I'm really surprised!

I applied for Photopass which was going to give me my internship credits and special projects for my major. I stressed this a lot in my interview and was given merchandise. I was under the impression that you could not change your role unless it was to entertainment after auditions.

Anybody know how often this has been done?

I would say very rarely. It could be that because she was not asking for a specific role but just one from a list that would receive credits.

I have been told that people have even been told they could not change from Fall advantage to Fall. So I'm actually surprised that this was allowed.

To the OP can you go into more detail of how this was accomplished.

Well I guess it was because her school had faxed a letter to Disney letting them know that there are only certain roles that they would allow for their resort & hospitality majors!! I am glad it worked out for her!

Thanks!

Just going to update that I actually emailed Disney about this. They replied with a list of requirements I could fax them, my role, what I needed switched to, etc and that they would review it! Apparently tomorrow is the last day to send in reviewable information and tomorrow they sit down and go through to review all the requests. This is only for specific roles for school internships and credits. They said I should know by the beginning of next week. I'm shocked, but excited!
