    Refund Policy/Financials

    Is there any deferral or refund policy for this Program?

    Refund Policy: (Programs with prep-session component)
    • Student must pay an amount of ₹25,000 as caution money for the enrollment of the course. This will be adjustable against the total course fee payable by the student.
    • You can claim a refund for the course at any time before the cohort start date by sending an email request to your Student Mentor and Admissions Counselor with reasons listed. The prep login will be activated immediately post completion of the 'payment of the 1st block amount (caution money)' or on the 'Specified date' as communicated by upGrad. Processing fee of ₹10,000 will be levied in case refund is claimed.
    • Student has to pay the full fee within 15 days of payment of block amount or cohort start date, whichever is earlier, otherwise the admission letter will be rescinded and processing fee of ₹10,000 will be levied.
    • Once the student pays block amount, "any" refund shall be subject to deduction of ₹10,000 processing charges.
    • Any taxes paid by the student shall not be refundable, and the amount to be withheld will be higher of taxes paid or 10,000 processing fees.
    • There shall be no refund applicable once the program has started. This is applicable even for those students who could not complete their payment and could not be enrolled in the batch opted for. However, the student can avail pre-deferral as per the policy defined below for the same.
    • Refund shall be processed to an eligible student within 30 working days from the date of receipt of refund form from him/her in this regard.
    • Refund shall be subject to deduction of ₹10,000 processing charges or the GST paid, whichever is higher as mentioned above.

    Deferral Policy: (Post Program Commencement)
    • If a student is facing severe issues in dedicating time to the course, we provide the opportunity for the student to defer to another batch.
    • A student can request for deferral only once and from the batch start date of initial batch the student enrolled for.
    • The student will be required to pay a deferral fees of 10% of the total course amount fee + Taxes if any along with the differential program fees between the two cohorts.
    • The deferral request will be approved once the deferral fee is paid.
    • Till this is completed, the student will be assumed to be continuing in the same cohort.
    • The student has 7 days (including holidays and weekends) from the date of deferral request to make the payment of the deferral fee post which the deferral request will expire, and the student will continue as part of the current cohort.
    • If the student completes the deferral payment, the student's login will be disabled, the student will leave the deferred cohort and the student will start learning on the new cohort from the point of the last assignment that was graded in the deferred cohort. All grades and progress until that point will be carried forward as it is to the new cohort. For clarification, the grades of the graded assignments will be carried forward, whether or not the student had submitted these grading during the initial stage.
    • The deferral can only be requested during the batch for which the student has enrolled is ongoing. Once the batch has completed, deferral requests shall not be entertained. For clarification, the batch completion here shall mean the "last grace deadline" as communicated by upGrad.

    Deferral Policy: (Pre Program Commencement)
    • If a student, due to unavoidable circumstances is unable to commence with the cohort and requests for a deferral before the cohort starts, we provide the opportunity for the student to defer to another batch.
    • However, the student will be required to pay 50% of the total course fee amount (inclusive of taxes) before the deferral can be approved. Till this is completed, the student will be assumed to be continuing in the same cohort.
    • A student can request for deferral only once and from the batch start date of initial batch the student enrolled for.
    • The student has time till the current cohort launch date to make the payment of the 50% program fee, post which the deferral request will expire. Once the deferral window expires and the student now asks for a refund, the above-mentioned applicable refund policy will apply.
    • The fee applicable to the deferred student will be as per prevailing fee for the batch student as opted to defer to (No additional deferral fee is required to be paid).
