Sophia Partners with Athens State University
Sophia is pleased to announce a new partnership with Athens State University to help prospective students achieve necessary credit requirements prior to enrollment. As an institution that provides bachelor completion undergraduate programs, Athens State University offers classes for the final two years of a four-year degree. Students must have completed the first two years of an associate's degree (or an equivalent of 60 semester credits) to enter these programs. Athens State University's partnership with Sophia offers students who do not meet the credit requirements a flexible, affordable option to move forward. By implementing Sophia's self-paced, competency-based courses, Athens State University will offer incoming students high-quality online courses for transfer into their chosen degree program.
Founded in 1822 in Athens, Alabama, Athens State University is an upper-division university known for its friendly, affordable convenience. Its goal is to be the premier destination for transfer students seeking the highest quality education and cutting-edge delivery at the most affordable cost.
Sophia is an online education platform dedicated to helping more students achieve college success with Sophia Pathways™, our online courses for college credit. These flexible, affordable, engaging courses offer students the skills they need to realize their degree goals. Sophia is a subsidiary of Capella Education Company.
