Frequently Asked Questions

What is FPU Online?
FPU Online is the online version of Financial Peace University.
How do I register? When does my 16-week online membership start?
Follow these steps to register for FPU Online:
  1. Add a membership to your shopping cart.
  2. Complete your order using the standard online store checkout.
  3. An activation code will be emailed to you immediately.
  4. Your membership will not start until you redeem the activation code.
Can I give FPU Online as a gift?
Yes! Purchasing the class and redeeming it are two totally separate actions. That means you can buy an FPU Online membership for someone else, and the membership will not begin until the recipient utilizes the activation code. However, each activation code can only be used once!
I have a lifetime membership kit. Can I attend FPU Online?
FPU Online is not included in the traditional live-class membership.
Does FPU Online include any physical resources like books, CDs, etc?
No, all of the class materials are digital.
How is FPU Online structured?
This is an entirely self-paced program, meaning you can move as quickly or slowly through the material as necessary. All members start on the first course, Super Saving and additional courses unlock as you progress through the program. However, all coursework must be completed within your 16-week membership period.
What happens after my 16-week membership is over?
We encourage FPU Online graduates to continue working through the Baby Steps with Dave's free budget tool, Every Dollar. It's the easiest way to take and stay in control of your money.

Will my personal information be kept confidential?
FPU Online will never release any of your personal information. Everything you enter in your budget, debt snowball, or any other portion of the site will remain strictly confidential and will only be seen by people you allow to review it.
