Financial Peace University
Almost 10 million people have learned the right way to manage money—and it’s not magic or luck. It’s Financial Peace University (aka FPU). This nine-lesson course teaches you how to walk the Baby Steps (aka the proven plan to saving, paying off debt, and building wealth) and thrive in personal finance basics like insurance, wise spending, real estate and mortgages, and even outrageous generosity.
These tried-and-true principles are what Dave Ramsey’s been teaching for over 25 years. And. They. Work.
As a Ramsey+ member, you can take FPU in a few different ways: Join an in-person or virtual group to connect with others, or go through the lessons at your own pace—from the comfort of your own couch.
One thing you won’t get from FPU is a bunch of confusing financial blah blah blah everyone else dishes out. FPU gives you the money info you need and actually makes it fun to learn about finances. Practical advice that’s also entertaining? Yes, please and thank you.
The Premium Version of EveryDollar
But how do you put all that knowledge into practice? Budgeting.
So, we’ve got this wonderful budgeting app called EveryDollar. And when you level up to Ramsey+, you unlock the premium version of EveryDollar.
What does this premium version hold? Only some of our favorite budgeting features ever. Features that make it easier and more efficient to build good budgeting habits you can actually keep up with. Features like . . .
- Bank Connectivity
Connect EveryDollar to your bank so transactions stream straight in to your budget. You just drag and drop them to the right budget line. Don’t worry about forgetting transactions or typing them in wrong. It’s faster. It’s more accurate. It’s freaking incredible.
- Budget Reports
Do your money habits line up with your money goals? With budget reports your income and your spending totals, trends and breakdowns, you’ll know the answer to that question!
Pay off debt fast and save more money with Financial Peace University.
This is a chance to get real—with yourself and your spending. Then you can make the changes you need to reach your goals faster, smarter and better than before.
- Transaction History
This one is for the extreme budgeters—we see you. Here’s another premium feature: a downloadable spreadsheet of your transaction history. Just hop over to the desktop view of your budget and look for the link that says Download as CSV. Click and enjoy.
- Paycheck Planning
No more overdraft fees or pre-payday panic attacks. With this premium feature, you can sort your expenses based on due dates to make that cash flow smoothly between paychecks.
- Tracking Recommendations
The premium version of EveryDollar notices trends in your tracking. Does that coffee shop expense always go to your personal spending line? Does your favorite taco truck go to restaurants? You’ll start seeing recommended tracking based on past spending. Just plop that transaction to the recommendation and save some serious scrolling time.
20+ Hours of On-Demand Money Courses
You’ll get the basics and the deep dives with all the other courses in Ramsey+. You can watch Budgeting That Actually Works to find out how to, well, make a budget that actually works for you in your stage of life.
Or check out our Ramsey Classics, including a 2008 throwback Financial Peace University lesson on the power of negotiation and getting the best deal.
And those are just two examples!
You can be confident with your money. No matter your past. No matter your income. These courses teach you how.

If I Already Took Financial Peace University, How Can Ramsey+ Help Me?
Yes, the lessons in Financial Peace University lay the foundation—but if you’ve already taken it, you can 1) rewatch the course if it’s been a while, 2) rewatch one of the lessons as a refresher, or 3) enjoy all those other benefits we listed. Because here’s the thing: You should be budgeting every single month, taxes are due every year, new livestreams come out on the regular . . . you get the picture.
Also, we can’t say enough about Know Yourself, Know Your Money—the course and audiobook inside Ramsey+. If you’ve taken FPU, this content brings a new angle to the timeless money principles we teach as you discover why you handle money the way you do.
In other words, Ramsey+ still has plenty to offer you no matter if you’ve seen FPU once or 100 times.
