  • The team will be reaching out for the bank details once the final login is issued to the friend after receipt of full payment and her/his program has commenced.
  • Unless otherwise specified, there is no time limit or usage limit for the validity of any Referral Code, i.e., a referral code can be used any number of times.

  • Source of referee: There will be a check of the source of the Friend and of whether the Referrer used any marketing channel or through Referrer himself/herself. The misuse of the code through any social media channels will cause upGrad to block your referral code. Our Finance team may contact you for clarification.
