This course was quite confusing at times, I had to rely on faith and determination to get through it, the Learning Coach and Manager Mike is one of the most professional, caring, and courteous people I met, so if you'll have any problems reach out to him. I did it.... Thanks JESUS CHRIST MY EVERYTHING

Mr. Laub knows his course matter very well but I struggled with his fluctuating volume and tempo of speech while watching the videos; also, some of the "solve for the equation" samples were not explained and there were some confusing typos/mistakes in the quizzes and module tests that were difficult to complete. I understand this was an abbreviated course but an alternate/additional instructor option would have been nice, thanks.

Loved the course! Easy to follow and to learn. I passed the ID Milestone with only one mistake on the first question, and only because I did not read carefully the answers.

Good course. A little confusing for me, but I am NOT a math person. If I can figure this out, I am sure anyone can.

Good foundation course. It helped me solidify the concepts learn on my previous course. I wish I would have taken this course first prior taking Introduction to Statistics.

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 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.
