Limited Enrollment Programs
Applying to an LEP
Prospective students should indicate their preferred major when completing their online application for admission. However, your preferred major does not affect your admissibility to the university. Admitted students who selected an LEP as their major are reviewed by the specific program to determine admission to that major.
While the majority of students are admitted to their preferred major, some LEP applicants may not be. Students who are admitted to UMD but not their preferred LEP major are placed in Letters & Sciences, where they will work with an advisor to meet the gateway requirements to earn admission to that major.
Admitted students who did not select an LEP major are admitted directly to the major indicated on their application. All major decisions are included in the applicant's admission decision letter.
Current students, or internal transfers, who would like to change their major to an LEP must apply to do so.
