Limited Enrollment Programs

Several majors at the University of Maryland (UMD) are considered Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP). These programs have limited space and, therefore, have more competitive admission criteria beyond the university’s general requirements. 

Students pursuing these majors may need to complete a series of "gateway requirements" specific to the major they are interested in. This can include completing certain courses, maintaining a specific GPA, etc.

LEP Majors
  • Biochemistry
  • Biological Sciences
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Communication
  • Computer Science
  • Criminology and Criminal Justice
  • Engineering
  • Immersive Media Design
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychology
