Interesting class, required for program. Saved a ton of money doing it on Sophia as opposed to University. I used my phone to complete the challenges when I had a minute--made it convenient and quick to get through.

I completed this class along with the proctored, in approx 1 week. It is very interesting, which helps to keep your attention. There is a lot of information to review and the questions have a varying level of a knowledge base. You will definitely need to read or study the PDF files, which I found to be more beneficial than watching the videos. This is my 3rd class with Sophia, and I wish I had used that approach to studying before. This was a much nicer way of completing this class versus writing papers and discussion classes. I had debated on which class to take and ultimately I am glad I choose this religion class, so worth it! Now I get 7 weeks off until my next class! :)

FAQ

  • 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, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • 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.

Oh no. Please don't go.
