This is to make sure the student is not using the LOA as a means to avoid Academic Failure. If the submission is done after the deadline, then a Non-Attempt at Assessment will be applied against the submission and the marks for the same module will be capped at 50%. The student has to submit a valid proof along with the LOA form. Acceptance of Leave of Absence Claim is subject to approval by the University.

                                                • 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.

                                                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 cohort.
                                                • To do so, the student will be required to pay 50% of the total Program 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 to any of the cohorts starting in the next 3 months from the start date of the initial batch in which the student was originally enrolled. For the first deferral request, subject to the point no. 2 of the Pre-Program Deferral Policy, no additional charges shall be levied.
                                                • If a student wants to defer his enrolment a second time, such student will have to make an additional payment of Rs.10,000 as Deferral fee, and this amount shall be non-refundable under any circumstances. Once this payment is done, students will be eligible to defer to any of the cohorts starting in the next 3 months from the current cohort.
                                                • The student has time till the current cohort launch date to make the payment of the balance 50% Program fee, post which the deferral request will expire. Once the deferral window expires and if such a student wants to withdraw his or her enrolment from the said Program, the refund policy will be applicable.
                                                • The student shall be liable to pay the differential Program fees between the two cohorts if any.

After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.

                                                Let's say Amount deducted at the time of transaction: INR 379850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 379850
                                                [Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
                                                EMI AMOUNT = INR 33750 x 12 = INR 405000
                                                Effectively, you have taken loan on 379,850 instead of 405,000
