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 Parent Referral Program that rewards parents for referring and for being referred. Read this article if you’re looking for information on our separate, Teacher Referral Program.

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.

Once the person you referred takes their first class, you’ll receive an email letting you know that your $20 credit has been automatically applied to your account as Outschool credit, which you can see from your Transactions page.

The $20 referral credit will also appear when you go to enroll in a class.

Your Outschool Credit will only be applied once the email address attached to your Outschool account is confirmed. If your email is unconfirmed in our system, you’ll see a banner prompting you to confirm it. You’ll then be able to redeem your referral credit.

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.

Referral program policies

Referral rewards only apply to certain users and purchases. Here's the fine print!

General Terms

A referred user is someone who signs up to Outschool in response to an invitation or shared link from an existing user. To be eligible for the referral program, a referred user must:

  • sign up on or after July 16, 2018

  • have a single Outschool account

  • be attributed in our database to another referring user

The $20 referred user credit becomes available upon signup in the form of Outschool Credit.

​A referring user is an existing Outschool user who invites a new user to Outschool.

The $20 referring user credit becomes available as Outschool Credit after the referred user begins their first class.

Other policies

  • Referral rewards are earned only in Outschool Credit.

  • Referring users cannot exceed a maximum of $2000 received in Outschool Credit.

  • Outschool Credit is not transferable and has no cash value. Please see Terms & Conditions.

  • Our team will honor unclaimed referral credits earned prior to January 6, 2021 through December 31, 2021, at which point they will no longer be redeemable.

  • A referred user's first purchase is required to be a direct enrollment in order for the referring user to receive Outschool credit. A referring user will not receive Outschool Credit if the referred user claims a gift enrollment as their first purchase.

  • In order for both parties to qualify for the referral credit, the new user must sign up for their Outschool account via the referring user’s invite link. Outschool is unable to attribute Outschool Credit retroactively if the new user did not create their account via the invite link; existing Outschool accounts will not be able to use the referral invite link.

  • Once the referral invite link is used, Outschool is unable to attribute the referral to another referrer or referee.

  • The referral invite link should only be used for personal, and not commercial purposes. Referral links should not be published or distributed on commercial websites, such as coupon websites or blogs.

  • Terms of the Parent Referral Program are subject to change at any point. Updates to policies will be posted here.
