VERY CHALLENGING. But learned more about human body and function. Everybody should take this course

I began the course buoyant and even soothed by sitting down to learn. However, to complete the course in such a short time (even with extensions) in addition to work and family commitments proved to be very stressfull and dulled the pleasure of learning. For this reason, I wouldn't take up another course with Sophia nor recommend your courses to others in a similar situation to myself.

Class was a longer than previous Sophia courses. I actually really enjoyed the content of each section though - so interesting and relatable to life!

Challenging and informative course. I really enjoyed it. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I found a couple things to be contradicting while taking the tests.

Great course! It was a bit longer with 6 assessments, but was still able to accomplish quickly.

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.
