Referral Credit Program

We’ve initiated a referral incentive program to help increase student enrollment at Lumbini.

The program works as follows:

1. Refer a child for enrollment at Lumbini.

2. Once a referral enrolls in the Center successfully for a minimum of six months, a one month free tuition will be given.

3. Once the referral completes a year, a second month’s tuition will be given. In other words, for each successful referral, two months free tuition will be given. The more students you can help enroll, the more credit you can receive.

If you have any questions, please email Leslie Nicho at missleslie_lumbini@yahoo.com or by phone at (213) 680-2976.
