This course was challenging yet very educational. I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short period of time.
by Brian A. on November 21, 2015
This was a challenging course for me. I found myself going back through the videos to attempt to find the information I needed to answer the questions correctly.

Some concepts are difficult but there are many examples to help guide you to success!
by Melodie G. on November 11, 2015
I personally feel that this course should not even be offered in this format. Accounting is something that in order to fully understand, should be more hands on. Trying to squeeze 4 units of formulas and other items onto 2 pages is not logical. If I had been able to actually work and solve accounting problems on my own, I may have been ale to grasp the concept.

Melodie -- congratulations on your successful course completion. This course is an alternate way of learning the practical, real-world concepts of Accounting. Students will find an abundance of accounting problems to solve using the concepts taught in the course. Sophia Learning Coaches are here to assist with questions and provide support on specific topics. Congratulations again, and we hope to see you back in a future Sophia course. Thank you.

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?
    A: Sophia courses are not eligible for most third party payment methods, and must be paid for by credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers both full and partial payment plans as part of the registration process.
  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. (Sophia’s English Composition I course also includes written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.)

    Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis. No letter grade is issued for a completed course.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
