Transfer Institutions

While we have sent Sophia transcripts on behalf of students to the following institutions, we do not have a formal articulation agreement and therefore can’t guarantee transfer. Schools accept credit transfer on a case-by-case basis and decisions may vary by student and specific degree plan. Please contact your institution’s registrar for their guidance and please contact a Sophia Learning Coach for help.

very good course a lot of reading but its worth it
by Joseph N. on March 6, 2021
This was a great class! Thank you for the well put together and informative material!
by Chris B. on March 6, 2021
Very informative and i really like how i can set my own pace.
by Sara B. on March 6, 2021
The course was fun and interesting, but the milestones were long and confusing. Many of the questions were taken from small snippets of material that were on random pages, rather than from the same chapter as the topic. One question, in particular, contradicted the reading completely.
by Leah D. on March 6, 2021
This was a fun and informative course.
by Bobbie R. on March 6, 2021
explained well but still very hard :(
by Angie M. on March 6, 2021
The information provided in each section was beneficial! I learned things I didn't know about!
by Tiffany G. on March 6, 2021
Really pay attention, but the content is interesting.
