Thank you for being part of the Outschool community! We've seen that many Outschool users invite their friends to join them in class or in the broader community.

To help you promote Outschool to your networks, we offer a referral program that rewards parents for referring and for being referred.

As of January 6, 2021, referral credits now apply directly to your Outschool Credit.

When you redeem your $20 referral credit, it will automatically be applied to your Outschool Credit balance, which appears when you click to enroll in a class.

Your Outschool Credit may only be redeemed with a confirmed email address on your Outschool account. If your email is unconfirmed in our system, you’ll see a banner prompting you to confirm it so you can redeem your referral credit.

See below for all policies regarding our Parent Referral Program. If you need additional support with Outschool Credits, please contact us at outschool.com/help.

Give $20, Get $20

When you refer someone, they'll get a $20 credit upon signup to use towards their first class.  When they take the class, you'll get a $20 credit. To refer someone, follow this link.

How we track referrals

Whenever you use the 'share' button on an Outschool class, or share via the referral page, we include your personal referral code. When someone clicks on a link you've shared, we can use the code to attribute their signup to you. This information is stored in our database and powers the referral program. You can check the status of your referral credits by visiting outschool.com/invite. At the bottom of that page, you’ll see information on the credits that you’ve received and whether they’ve been redeemed.
