                No cost CC EMI FAQ's

                0% EMI with Finance partners /Credit card option availability will vary program-wise.

                1. Which banks allow using 0% Credit card EMI or Credit card EMI?
                No-cost EMI is available on credit cards from all major banks (American Express, Bank of Baroda, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Indus Ind Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, RBL Bank, Standard Chartered, Axis Bank, Yes Bank)

                2. Is there any minimum transaction limit?
                Yes. 50,000 is the minimum.

                3. Standard Chartered Bank offers 18 or 24 months No Cost EMI?
                No. ONLY 12 months is available irrespective of the Program enrolled.

                4. Will I have to pay any extra amount for EMI transaction?
                If you are availing 0% credit card EMI, upGrad will not charge any processing fees or down payment for these transactions. Your bank may levy GST or other taxes on the interest component of the EMI.

                5. Are there any fees or down payment?
                Certain banks charge nominal processing fees between INR 99 - 500 on 0% Credit Card EMI transaction. If charged, will be billed in the first repayment installment.

                6. Can I use my International credit card for 0% credit EMI or Credit Card EMI?
                Only 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. This deduction will be in addition to the amount mentioned in the refund policy shared with your offer letter.

                8. Can I Pay Using Multiple Credit Cards?
                Multiple cards can be used to complete the payments using Part payment option make sure to inform the learner, minimum transaction is INR 50,000 to opt for 0% CC EMI E.g. Amount to be paid: 1,50,000. I can pay using 2 Credit cards. Yes, Example :
                HDFC Card – Part payment – INR 1,00,000
                ICICI Card – Part payment – INR 50,000

                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 INR 1,00,000 on a 6-month EMI and your credit limit is INR 2,00,000 then initially your bank will block your credit limit by INR 1,00,000. After payment of your first month's EMI of INR 15,000, the blocked amount will come down to INR 85,000.

                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 4,05,000
                Let's say Amount deducted at the time of the transaction: INR 3,79,850 (Principal amount) Bank charges interest of 12-15% per annum on INR 3,79,850
                [Note: Interest factor is reducing rate and not Flat rate]
                EMI AMOUNT = INR 33,750 x 12 = INR 4,05,000
                Effectively, you have taken loan on 3,79,850 instead of 4,05,000

                Refund Policy

                Is there any deferral or refund policy for this Program?

                Refund Policy: (Programs with prep-session component) 

                 

                • Students must pay applicable caution money for the enrolment to the Program. This caution amount will be adjustable against the total Program fee payable by the student.
                • You can claim a refund for the amount paid towards the Program at any time, before the Cohort Commencement Date, by visiting www.upgrad.com and submitting your refund form via the "My Application" section under your profile. Processing fee of INR 10,000/- will be levied. If less than INR 10,000/- have been paid in total, the student shall not be eligible for any refund in such case.
                • The student shall not be eligible for any refund under any circumstances if any such refund requests are raised post Cohort Commencement Date and student will continue to pay the EMI for the loan (if applicable) and such loan cannot be cancelled. This is also applicable for those students who could not complete their payment and could not be enrolled in the cohort opted for. However, the student can raise a request for Pre-Program deferral as per the policy defined below for the same.
                • In case of a refund, the student will be solely responsible for any cancellation of the loan, including but not limited to applicable loan cancellation charges levied on the total cancelled loan amount.
                • Students must pay the full fee within 7 days of payment of Caution Money or Cohort Commencement Date, whichever is earlier, otherwise, the admission letter will be rescinded.
                • Request for refund must be sent via e-mail in the prescribed Refund Request Form. The refund will be processed within 30 working days of commencement of the program after being duly approved by the Academic Committee.

                 

                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 to either of the scheduled cohorts to start in the next 1 year from the batch start date of the 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).

                 

                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 to either of the scheduled cohorts to start in the next 1 year from the batch start date of the initial batch the student enrolled for.
                • The student will be required to pay 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 till 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 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 been completed, deferral requests shall not be entertained. For clarification, the batch completion here shall mean the “last grace deadline” as communicated by upGrad.
