Financial Peace University FAQs

Is it one membership per couple or per individual?

FPU memberships are per household memberships. A married couple attending FPU only needs to purchase one membership.

What’s included in my membership?

Members will receive the following with their initial annual membership activation:

FPU workbook, 12 months of access to EveryDollar Plus budgeting software, 12 months of access which includes all lesson video content, digital tools, Ask a Coach, vibrant online community, future content, and select livestream events.

Not only will you have access online to “Financial Peace University”, but you will also have access to “The Legacy Journey” as well as “Smart Money, Smart Kids” resources.

FPU members can also attend local FPU classes at any time as many times as they’d like, even if their online access has expired.

What if I miss a lesson?

We encourage you to do your best to attend every lesson as the group time is very beneficial to your FPU journey. However, we understand that life happens. Your membership gives you online access to all of the lessons and videos.

What if I can’t attend a group in person?

You can join one of our online FPU groups or you can utilize your access to and take the course at your own pace.

If I purchase FPU and cannot attend for any reason, is there any kind of refund?

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer refunds for FPU.

What if I can’t afford the FPU course fee?

Because of the generosity of others in our Real Life family, we have scholarships available. You can apply online at

Will all the groups be launching the same week in January?

Our official launch for FPU is January 27th. However, we have groups starting during other weeks as well.

Where do I go to pick up my FPU workbook?

After you purchase your membership, you can pick up your book at your campus Gear Store by showing a copy of your confirmation email.

How do I complete my registration and get my group code?

Your online group code will be emailed to you by your group leader after January 1, 2020.

After purchasing FPU, what will be the main way that the church will contact me with all the additional details I will need?

Your group leader is your main point of contact for information about your FPU group.

Can those who aren’t members of Real Life attend an FPU group here?

FPU is for EVERYONE! Everyone is invited to attend an FPU group here!

Do non-Real Life members receive the discounted price?

YES! The discounted price is for anyone taking FPU through Real Life.

What is the best way for me to invite my friends to do FPU with me?

Personal invitations always work best. Invite your friends to join your FPU group and direct them to to signup!

Can I purchase an FPU membership for someone else?

The short answer is “YES!”

You will need to purchase the membership in a separate transaction from your own membership purchase. You can use this link to go directly to the page to purchase a membership.

Click “NO” to answer “Have you previously purchased an FPU Membership?”

You can then purchase a single membership and take a copy of the confirmation to the gear store to receive the book.

The person you are gifting the membership to will still need to register for a group at, but should select “yes” when asked, “Have you previously purchased an FPU Membership?”
