Sample Pre-candidacy Schedule
The schedules are suggestions. You should consult with your research advisor and/or pre-candidacy advisor regarding your specific choices. You need to be registered for 9 credit hours for each semester. PHYS 992 and 994 (research classes) have the magic power to count for full (9 hours) enrollment, even though you need to register only for 3 hours.
