* Once in the PhD program, all students must attend and pass the preliminary non-credit course in Mathematical Economics and Statistics. The course typically runs during the last few weeks of August.  The exam, which is scheduled immediately before regular classes commence, is graded on pass/fail basis, and students who do not pass will be permitted one more attempt a few weeks later during the fall term. If a student does not pass during his/her second attempt, he/she is required to withdraw from the PhD program.
