How to Apply

What are STEM Fields?

STEM fields are disciplines in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Find out if your major qualifies as STEM at the LSAMP website.  

Students who want to enroll in LSAMP during the school year must enroll within the first 10 days of each semester. Students may enroll during the first LSAMP meeting, during the Early Arrival Program or the LSAMP Orientation short course each Fall semester, or in the Director’s office (Benton 103) during that 10 day window.
