This a credit model only; not requirements.

Depending on a number of individual factors, you may or may not need all five years of funding. According to New York State law, every full time student must be enrolled in 12 credit hours per semester. The Graduate School will enroll you in the appropriate filler course each semester after the deadline to withdraw from classes. You only need to enroll in the courses that you decide on with the input of your Special Committee and let the Graduate School handle evening your enrollment out to 12 credit hours per semester.
