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

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

How do people join my class?

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.

Is there a limit to how many people can join my 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.

How much does it cost to lead a class?

It’s free to coordinate Financial Peace University! We’ll give you everything you need to lead in an easy-to-use digital format. While leading a class is free for the coordinator, members will need to purchase a Financial Peace Membership in order to attend the class.

What do I need to lead FPU? Are there any prerequisites?

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.

Do coordinators get paid?

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 one-year access to financialpeace.com ($159 value), EveryDollar Plus, product discounts, exclusive access to events and more!

Do I receive guidance or training from Ramsey Solutions?

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.

How long is the class and what is the weekly time commitment?

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.

What are the different types of class formats?

Where can I host the class?

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.

Can someone else lead with me?

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

How many people are required to be in my group?

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.

How do people join my class?

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.

Can I lead a class if I’ve never taken FPU?

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.

What do class members need?

Class members just need two things: a Member Workbook—which they’ll bring to each class—and access to financialpeace.com. They can purchase both using the unique class link we’ll send you. You can also find the unique class link in your dashboard on financialpeace.com.

How much does Financial Peace University cost for members?

The retail cost of a Financial Peace Membership is $129.
