GGU-upGrad Partner Programs are available to students residing both outside and within the United States. However, these programs are not eligible for U.S. Federal Student Aid. Study abroad and immersion students must obtain non-immigrant visas to participate.

Consequently, they are offered at a lower tuition rate than GGU’s traditional degree programs.
