I see a lot of people in the threads getting upset that they weren’t directly admitted to CS.
There is almost no difference between internally transferring once you’re a UMD student and if you were directly admitted.
I applied as a math major, and I was admitted this semester into CS for a dual degree. Since CS is a non-competitive LEP, there is no actual maximum number of students in the major as long as they meet gateway requirements. Every single student who meets the gateway requirements is GUARANTEED to be admitted to the major. Gateway requirements have to be met by ALL CS students regardless of whether they were directly admitted. The only difference is that an internal transfer has to have a 2.7 cumulative GPA to officially add the major to your transcript by the time you complete the entry level courses while direct admits need a 2.0 by the same benchmark.
Afterwards, the 2.0 GPA applies for both types of students. Gateway requirements are just CMSC131 (equivalent to AP Computer Science A), CMSC132 (Second Java class), and MATH140 (Calc 1 or AP Calculus).
All this information can be found at: https://lep.umd.edu/cs-lep.pdf
All these courses can be completed within the first year at UMD.
Hope to see you all here in the fall!
