Can I transfer credits into the Ph.D. program?

By New York State law, students can transfer a maximum of 9 units into the program; these must be graduate credits, and they must not have been previously used for a prior degree (such as your Master's degree). However, note that the focus of the Ph.D. program is on professional scholarship, not coursework; so transferring units in may not accelerate your progress in the degree. Any transfer credits are subject to program review.
