This class was a challenge for someone who hasn't done math in years, but I got through it and I know anyone else can too.

the course assumed prime numbers were just 'known.' there should be a brief review of this concept if it is a constant mention throughout the course. Some lessons were not as thorough, making it difficult to differentiate between which formula should be used in milestones.

This was a great course. If you like Math, this course can be completed in less than a week. This was my first course using a Proctor and Bertara was awesome.

This course was a bit challenging at first, but Sophia provided a lot of examples to guide you through the entire course. I will recommend this course to anyone. Thanks to Sophia team for all they do to help their students. Thanks again.

This was a great refresher course. It covered all the Foundations of Algebra. The course tutorials were very helpful and explained the material very well. I finished this course in less than a week and I feel confident going into a more advanced math class.

The course was good, I just dislike math. I appreciate the cost of the class and the work as you go program. I also appreciate being able to work from home.

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.
