The Interim Advising Program (IAP) allows students that transfer to Maryland with 60 or more credits, who are interested in a Limited Enrollment Program (LEP), to meet any outstanding requirements towards those majors and apply for admission. IAP students are assigned to a program coordinator who will help them to identify what requirements they have left to complete for their intended LEP as well as help them to select an alternative major. IAP students are allowed to remain in Letters and Sciences for up to two semesters before having to declare a major.
Advising Requirements: IAP students are on mandatory advising during the two semesters they are in the program. Because of their early registration date, IAP students are strongly encouraged to schedule their advising appointment early in the semester. IAP students are required to complete and submit the following:
IAP students have two semesters to meet admission requirements for the LEP major of their choice. At the end of the two-semester period, IAP students must either gain acceptance into the LEP major or declare an alternate non-LEP major.
