Spread hope without spreading COVID-19. You can lead a virtual FPU class.
LEAD A FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY CLASS
People need to know the truth—that they CAN win with money. Join us on the mission to help them crush debt, ditch money stress, and take control of their futures. As an FPU coordinator, you’ll help people where you live go from “I’ve had it!” to “I’ve got this!”
WHO CAN BE AN FPU COORDINATOR?
Anyone. That means you too.
Each year, we partner with thousands of rock-star coordinators who change the lives of millions of people. (Yeah. It’s a pretty huge deal.)
They aren’t know-it-all finance pros—just regular folks with a heart to help others. Dave and his team handle all the teaching. And a dedicated advisor walks with you every step of the way.
WHAT DOES AN FPU COORDINATOR DO?
It’s not about fixing people’s problems. It’s about giving hope.
We get it. This money thing is big. But volunteering to lead an FPU class is simple.
As a coordinator, you’ll invite people to the class. Over nine lessons, you'll lead discussions after members watch each video lesson. You’ll sit knee to knee and listen to their stories. That’s how you start making a difference.

Frequently Asked Questions
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. If digital isn’t your thing, you have the option to purchase physical materials. While leading a class is free for the coordinator, members will need to purchase class materials in order to attend the class.
Can I lead a class online?
Absolutely! By leading a virtual FPU class, you can deliver hope to your class members—from anywhere. In a virtual class, your class members will watch the video lessons on their own before joining a video chat for discussion together.
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 and the 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?
There are two options!
Time: 45 minutes (members watch videos ahead of class)
Discussion: As a group
AV Equipment: Not required
Ideal For: Any public space
Time: 90 minutes (members watch videos during class)
Discussion: As a group
AV Equipment: Required
Ideal For: Community centers, churches and homes
Where can I host the class?
That’s up to you! If you choose to have members watch the lesson videos 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?
How much does Financial Peace University cost for members?
The retail cost of a Financial Peace Membership is $129. However, coordinators receive an exclusive discount that they can pass along to their class members. For the most up to date pricing, please contact your advisor.
