Applying to the Major


Transfer Students


Students applying to the University of Maryland from other institutions apply to LEPs through the general application for admission to the University by indicating their major of interest. Students are first reviewed for admission to the University, and then, if admitted, are reviewed for admission to Limited Enrollment Program majors based on LEP standards.

Applicants who have completed all required Gateway courses at the time of their application are notified of their admission decision in late April for fall admission and late October for spring admission. Students who are in the process of completing the required Gateways at the time of their application are notified of their admission decision to the university at the previously mentioned times, but will be notified about the major decision after the semester has ended and final grades for the semester have been calculated. Students should be sure to send their final transcript from their previous institution if they are taking classes at the time of application.

Current Students


First semester freshman wanting to change to or add a BSOS LEP have until the last day of classes in their first semester to change/add a BSOS LEP. First semester freshman meeting this deadline will be treated as directly admitted freshmen and will not have to complete the entrance requirements prior to admissions.

Current Maryland students applying to change/add a major after completing their first semester as a freshman must complete the entrance requirements before submitting their LEP application, which is obtained from a department advisor. The GPA requirement for entrance into a BSOS LEP major is based on ALL previous college level coursework. This includes courses taken at other institutions that may not have been accepted as credit here at Maryland. Please see the department website for specific requirements.
