What is a Graduate Co-op program at Drexel University?
The Graduate Co-op program enables graduate students to alternate class terms with a six-month period of hands-on experience, gaining access to employers in their chosen industries. Through this program learners get the opportunity to expand their professional networks, enhance their résumés, and bring that experience back to the classroom and their peers.
Once students are on campus, they should contact their graduate academic advisor to declare a Graduate Co-op concentration. Students will have until the end of the fall course add/drop period to declare their concentration.
In many cases, co-op opportunities are paid positions. However, compensation varies depending on the industry, job market, or other special circumstances. Whether paid or unpaid, all of our co-ops offer unparalleled industry experience with a variety of employers.
Most graduate co-op positions are within the Philadelphia/Delaware Valley area, but there are opportunities nationally and internationally and some are remote.
Students enrolled in the Graduate Co-op program by the end of the course add/drop period of the fall quarter will have a summer/fall co-op, which means they will be on co-op during the summer and fall quarters.
During the fall quarter of the first year, students will be registered in the COOP 500 course, which will cover resume development, job search planning, and on-the-job professionalism. At the start of the winter term, students will meet with their co-op advisor for an introduction to the job search database and resume review. Meetings will occur within the first three weeks and students will then gain access to the job search database to review and apply for available positions. Employers will select candidates from the database to interview. Simultaneously, students are encouraged to conduct an independent job search beyond the database for opportunities.
All students in the USA with a valid F-1 Visa are not eligible to work off-campus. Rather, such students are eligible to work on-campus as graduate assistants or research assistants or other on-campus ad-hoc jobs and receive compensation, beginning in their first semester. The list of available positions will be provided in advance of the Fall semester (please note the number of these positions are limited and not guaranteed).

6. Can I use my International credit card for 0% credit EMI or Credit Card EMI?
Only the Indian bank credit cards can be used. But you can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions, this will be purely between you and your bank.
7. Are there any charges in case I opt for cancellation/refund from the course after paying balance with no cost EMI ?
Yes, there will be additional charges to the extent of interest paid by the upGrad to the bank, you will be refunded only Principal amount, i.e. the amount actually deducted/blocked from your card.

HDFC Card – Part payment – INR 100000
ICICI Card – Part payment – INR 50000
9. How can I opt for Credit card EMI if my bank is not listed in the 0% Credit card EMI or Credit card EMI?
You can pay the amount using the Credit card option in one shot / part payments, and later you can convert into EMI from your respective bank. The tenures and interest charged will depend on your bank. upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions.
10. Why is the entire amount blocked on my credit card?
Initially your bank will block the entire amount from your available purchase limit and from your next billing cycle, you will be charged the EMI amount. As you start paying your EMI, your credit limit will be released accordingly. For example, if you have made a payment of ₹100000 on 6-months EMI and your credit limit is ₹200,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by ₹100000. After payment of your first month EMI of Rs.15000, the blocked amount will come down to ₹85000.
11. Why is interest getting charged on No Cost EMI?
Your bank will charge you interest. However, this interest charge has been provided to you as an upfront discount at the time of your payment, effectively giving you the benefit of a No cost EMI. The total amount paid during the entire EMI tenure to the bank will be equal to the amount to be paid to upGrad.
Eg. Amount payable to upGrad: INR 405000
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
