* LEAP has been initiated to clarify the prerequisites required by students who have not graduated from an ABET accredited institution or students who have a non-engineering baccalaureate degree. The major advisor will confer with the student on an individual basis to determine the appropriate course of action and formulate a proposed list of courses to be completed prior to unconditional admission.

It has only been accepted by the Board of PLS in the State of Alabama and reciprocity to other states is not automatic.
