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.
All undergraduate courses in spring 2020 will default to the pass/fail grading method. The minimum grade requirements for major, concentration, Academic Writing, General Education and benchmark courses, as well as Limited Enrollment Programs Gateway courses, will be satisfied by a mark of P for the spring 2020 semester. If a student elects to opt in to the regular grading method, so as to obtain a letter grade for a course, the regular grading policies apply, and the student must meet the minimum grade required for the LEP Gateway courses.
For additional information about spring 2020 grading and Limited Enrollment Programs, please see the UMD Keep Learning site.
