*I501 and I502 must occur in semesters where they appear, all other courses can be taken in years 1-3.
#Dual PhD students with Cognitive Science of Psychology and Brain Sciences can are required to take either I601 or I606, if a similar course is completed in the dual degree, such as Q610/P657 "Networks of the Brain" or COGS-Q580 "An Introduction to Dynamical Systems in Cognitive Science".

Orange line represents time when all students must complete course requirements for admission to candidacy, which can happen any time in year 3. Mentorship of under-represented minority undergraduate students, under the Summer Research Opportunities in Computing (IU-SROC) program, occurs in the last two years. The dissertation proposal is expected to occur by the end of year 4 (red line). Dissertation defense is expected to occur during year 5.
