How do I sign up for FPU?

FPU Registration is done exclusively online, register below.

NOTE: If you have not previously done so, you will be required to set up an “account” for your entire family prior to registration. This account is used for all IBC internet based registrations. If you are signing up as couple, you can both enroll at ONCE, just don’t forget to add your spouse’s name at the bottom of the first page of the online registration.

How much does it cost?

The one-time, lifetime cost is $99 per FPU kit per family . Also for Re-takers just a new updated workbook is available for only $20. At this time scholarships are not offered.

Can I sign-up for FPU Again and re-take the class?

Yes! You do need to register, but there is no cost. Please sign up selecting yes for “Are you a retaking the course” and at the bottom select payment: you can enroll 1 as a “Retaker” for no cost. Note that if you took the class prior to Fall 2012, you might consider purchasing a new workbook ($20), because the FPU videos have been changed significantly. Also there is an option to enroll with new materials and pay the full price if you want them.

Should I take Crown or FPU?

You should take both! Crown is a Biblically based small-group study providing the “WHY” of finances.Ramsey’s FPU is a more practical, DVD-based, step-by-step study about the “HOW” offinances. FPU and Crown are complementary and IBC recommends you take both (in any order).
