Help others find financial peace by hosting a virtual FPU group.

VIRTUAL CLASS. REAL HOPE.

People are hurting right now. And they need HOPE. They need people—just like you—to help them crush debt, ditch money stress, and take control of their futures. As an FPU coordinator, you’ll help people around the country go from “Now what?!” to “I’ve got this!”

What is Financial Peace University?

Financial Peace University is THE proven plan that has helped nearly 6 million people take control of their money. This nine-lesson course gives members the principles and tools they need to crush their financial goals and leave money stress behind.

Never gone through FPU yourself? Not a big deal. Changing lives is a team effort, and we’ll be with you every step of the way. Just think, you can be that person, that hero who sparks the conversations that totally transform their neighbors' lives. You don’t have to be debt-free or a money expert—just someone who wants to help people take control of their money.

HEAR WHAT OTHER COORDINATORS ARE SAYING:

“I’m loving how convenient the virtual classes are. No need to drive anywhere. I love being able to power up my laptop and a few minutes later be 'in class.' I also love coordinating virtual classes because I can do them from anywhere there is an internet connection.”

— Holly

“I can truly say that [in] my first ever virtual class . . . the members are finishing just as strong and energized as ever! I was skeptical at first, but now I see clearly that this virtual thing is a great option for any new or veteran coordinators who want to start a new class!”

— Judy Z.

“We had our first virtual class last night, and it was a good experience. I was very nervous going into it, not knowing how well it would be received. But I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout and the enthusiasm.”

— Milton L.

We’ve saved the best part for last. Leading a class is free! That means you’ll get the up-to-date video lessons and digital Leader Materials at no cost. It’s all included in your Coordinator Dashboard.

FAQs

If you set your class as public, we’ll list it on our Class Finder page to help people across the country find your class. But personal invitation is always the #1 way to invite people to your class—you can share your unique class link with your friends, your family or anyone interested your class.

No, your class size is up to you! For larger groups, we recommend breaking into small groups for the discussion.

If you’re leading a virtual class, we do recommend no more than 15 people to have the best online discussion.

It’s free to coordinate Financial Peace University! We’ll give you everything you need to lead in an easy-to-use digital Coordinator Guide. While leading a class is free for the coordinator, members will need to purchase a Ramsey+ membership in order to attend the class. Coordinators get a year of Ramsey+ free for leading.

Anyone can coordinate FPU! You don’t need to be debt-free, have a degree in finance, or even have gone through the class. All you need to lead is a location or video conferencing tool and the free, digital Coordinator Guide, which you’ll use to guide the class discussions and activities.

Coordinators are volunteers with a passion for helping others learn how to win with money. While coordinators aren’t paid, they do receive special perks—like a free year of Ramsey+, product discounts, exclusive access to events and more!

Coordinating FPU is simple, so extensive training isn’t needed. In addition to your free digital Coordinator Guide, you’ll get a dedicated advisor who will answer questions and guide you through your class. You’ll also find helpful videos in the Coordinator Dashboard that show you how to get the most out of your class. Changing lives is a team effort, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.

Financial Peace University has nine lessons. Each class lasts between 45–90 minutes, depending on the format you decide to use. Typically, classes meet once a week for each lesson.

That’s up to you! If you choose to have members watch the video lessons before class, then you can meet almost anywhere—in a coffee shop, online, at the park or in a restaurant. If your class decides to watch the videos as a group, feel free to host at home, at church, in a library—anywhere with an AV setup and an internet connection.

Sure thing! Anyone can be a co-coordinator, including your spouse or a friend.

A group can be as large or as small as you’d like. You can close your group to the public and only invite people you know, or you can open it for anyone in your area to find. The average group size is around seven people.

Your class will have its own webpage you can share with anyone interested in joining. On this page, people can register for your class. If you open your class to the public, people will be able to find your webpage on daveramsey.com. But if you mark your class as private, then only those you share your webpage with will be able to join.

Yes! And we encourage that. In fact, 40% of coordinators take the class for the first time while they are leading it. You can treat coordinating FPU like leading a small group, where you study with the group and facilitate it at the same time.

Class members just need a Ramsey+ membership to join the class. They'll find their Member Workbook and access to all of the lessons in their membership. They can purchase their membership using the unique class link we’ll send you. You can also find the unique class link in your dashboard.

The retail cost of a Ramsey+ membership is $129.99. The FPU class materials can be accessed through their membership. But that's not all they get. Their Ramsey+ membership will also have the premium version of EveryDollar, the BabySteps tracker, and a bunch of other products and classes to keep them motivated on their journey.
