Answers:

1. How often do the classes meet?

There are 13 class sessions meeting one day per week.
 
2. How long is each class session?

We suggest two hours for each session, and each is independent of the others.

Part One, taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD, teaches you how to make wise financial decisions based on Scripture.

Part Two of each class session is a small-group discussion. The design of the discussion groups helps you apply the principles to your daily life. Members hold each other accountable, build friendships, and support one another. Since personal finance is 80% behavior, this small-group format ensures that class members realize finance is more than just math.

3. What is the average size of the class?

The video portion of the class is unlimited. However, during the discussion time, break down into 8-12 families, plus a coordinator, for each small group.

4. If I miss one class, can I make it up?

The coordinator can work with you to make up that lesson by allowing you to take the video lesson home with you, as long as you return it the following class. There may be a deposit required to borrow a lesson on DVD.

5. What is included in the FPU Membership Kit?

6. How many classes do I need to attend in order to graduate?

You must attend 12 of the 13 classes to qualify for the graduation certificate.

7. What are the subjects covered in each lesson?

8. When will the first class start?

The first class session usually takes place approximately two weeks after the final preview session, allowing time to process the enrollments and ship all the class materials.

13. Is there a refund if I do not like the program?

Our guarantee is simply this: "If you do it, it works! If you don't do it, it won't work!"  If you work the program, you won't want your money back. If you don't work the program, you don't get your money back.

14. What is FPU Membership?

When you purchase a Financial Peace University (FPU) Membership, you receive all the class materials and access to the FPU online resources you need to succeed. Your "membership" means that you can attend the FPU class as often as you like. Spouses and engaged couples can attend together with a single Membership, and teens living at home are welcome to attend with their parents.

16. I thought I had "lifetime" membership, why can't I login to FPU Central?

Your FPU "membership" means that you can attend the FPU class as often as you like. You don’t need to purchase additional materials to attend a 9-week class but if you would like to experience the new workbook, envelope system or FPU Central you have options to upgrade your kit or purchase a Member Workbook with FPU Central Activation Code.
