Hund's Rule

Can an two electrons within the same subshell have different energies associated with them?

electrons in the same subshell are degenerate, so they have the same energy

I thought he said something like this in class, but I don't know.

They cannot have different energies because they are degenerate. In multi-electron atoms, energy is dependent on the shell and orbital of the electron. If the two electrons have the same principal and magnetic quantum number, and thus occupy the same orbital, they must have the same energy.

Electrons that have the same principle illustrates that they will have the same energy level. However, when it comes to comparing different orbitals, they will have different energy levels.
