What is FPU?  This 9-week course is a proven program that will show you how to master personal budgeting, save for emergencies, pay off debt, plan and invest for the future, and live and give like no one else. 

“Debt is so ingrained into our culture that most Americans can’t even envision a car without a payment … a house without a mortgage … a student without a loan … and credit without a card. We’ve been sold debt with such repetition and with such fervor that most folks can’t conceive of what it would be like to have NO payments.”
—Dave Ramsey 

This course is open to all members of the Pacific community, including friends and family. Staff of Pacific University may apply for the Staff Professional Development Grant to request assistance with purchasing the required materials.  For more information, please contact Jolene Vice.
