The program shall take place once or twice a year and the student can choose to attend any one of them. The OCS program shall incur an additional fee of USD 750 payable 1 month before its scheduled commencement.


Note: The OCS program is conducted subject to a minimum number of students opting for the same.


To make it affordable for students enrolled in another University, GradXs offers a fee waiver of up to USD 500 based on the stage of their existing program. Eligible students can also avail an exemption of credits, subject to evaluation of progress in their existing program.

Additionally, GradXs offers extra support to such students by designing a customised timeline which helps the student in completing the program on time.

However, this shall incur an additional fee of USD 500.
