Test questions sometimes did not match up to test answers. Poorly written questions and answers. Not really impressed with that at all.

This course was extremely easy to follow and the instructor kept each lesson concise, yet informative. I was able to finish the course within two weeks. The only problem I came across was that the tutorial would not play if I paused it to take notes, and it would only play again if I refreshed it.

This was very informative and also a little bit tricky. Read the questions carefully in the milestones. Also one question on my final milestone had two of the exact same answers but mine was marked incorrect. Oh well, I passed and it's on to the next!

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.
