Tractates at YU RIETS are chosen once a seven-year cycle. I am curious in finding out if an entire list exists?

For example, this article from 2002 discusses the tractates chosen for the next seven years:

The Rashei HaYeshiva decided on the following list of masechtot slated for study over the next six years: 5763 - Ketubot, perek Alef; 5764 - Sanhedrin, perek Alef; 5765 - Shabbos, perek Zayin; 5766 - Kiddushin, perek Beis; 5767 - Baba Kamma, perek Zayin; and 5768 - Berachos, perek Vav.

Many students were surprised to hear that RIETS chooses a new set of masechtot every seven years. The majority of students that were asked assumed that the yeshiva followed a concrete, repetitive, seven-year cycle.

    @DoubleAA This looks squarely on-topic to me. It's about the history of and perhaps best practices in Judaism. It could be improved if minhag would edit in more information about why such a history would be worth having. – Isaac Moses Jan 25 '17 at 14:13
  • I think @DanF is right on this one. Why isn't this off-topic as about Jews independent of Judaism? – DonielF Mar 20 '17 at 21:53
  • @DonielF I also think this may be "localized". I don't think that there is a standard cycle followed by all yeshivot. If there is, then O.P. can greatly improve and make this question more relevant by providing a source for that and questioning why, perhaps, Y.U. has a different standard. – DanF Mar 20 '17 at 21:57
  • @DonielF there's nothing "independent of Judaism" about teaching Torah. – Isaac Moses Mar 23 '17 at 13:59
