Selecting a LEAP Pride

What should I consider when selecting a LEAP Pride?

Most courses in the LEAP program will help you make progress toward your General Education and/or Entrance to Major requirements. The General Education Knowledge Domains are listed next to each course when you click on the name of the pride. All students, regardless of their intended major, must fulfill General Education requirements in the seven areas of General Education. You do not have to enroll in a LEAP Pride that contains a course for your intended major, you may select from any of the LEAP Pride offerings.

For LEAP 2022, LEAP will be a fully in-person experience. All LEAP courses will be offered in person and all LEAP students will live on campus (students from Centre County may elect to live at home).

You can view suggested academic plans by major by visiting the University Bulletin. Locate the major at University Park and review the suggested academic plan to help you select a pride. These guides recommend General Education courses for specific majors and suggest the semester it is best to take them to keep you on track for graduation.

If you are unsure of the pride you would like to enroll in or would like to speak with someone about your specific interests, contact the LEAP staff at or 814-863-4174.
