Limited Enrollment Programs

Certain majors are very popular and require a limit on the number of students they can accommodate and are designated Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP).

Gateway Requirements

Students interested in an LEP major must successfully complete a specific set of courses, or "gateway" requirements, in order to be considered for admission to the major. Visit the LEP website for gateway requirements for individual programs. If you wish to transfer into an LEP, use the Transfer Course Database to determine which courses that you have already taken fulfill the LEP gateway requirements.
