Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP) have specific gateway requirements for admission and determine their enrollments on a space-available basis. All students — current and transfer — may apply to a Limited Enrollment Program. Please see the information below to learn about the specific requirements for each LEP.
Spring 2021 Grading Update: For students not currently attending the University of Maryland but who transfer in Fall 2021 or later, a grade of C- or higher, or a grade of 'pass' if equivalent to a C- or higher, is acceptable in all LEP gateway requirements if a student completes the course during the Spring 2021 semester. LEP gateway requirements that normally require a B- or higher (Engineering: PHYS161 & MATH141; Government and Politics: GVPT170 [or GVPT241 if AP credit is granted for GVPT170]; and Psychology; PSYC100 [or PSYC221 if AP credit is granted for PSYC100]) can be satisfied with either a grade of 'Pass' or a C- or higher only if completed in Spring 2021.
