The course was great up through Unit 5 (aside from a lot of typos), but I wasn't happy with Unit 6. The material was poorly organized, and many of the concepts were not explained thoroughly. I had to supplement a lot using other sources.

This course was challenging, however the instructors were excellent. I appreciated the ability to view multiple instructors on each study unit. Sophia makes taking online classes very convenient to my schedule.

Good class. Definitely one of the hardest classes I have taken so far simply due to the nature of learning statistics.

Course was challenging towards the end. Staying focused and isolated away from everyone helped me to complete the course. Also, yes there was a little confusion with the switch and video styles but a combination of reading the material and videos I was able to press on through completion. Thanks to this platform I was able to complete general electives for a third of the price and In less time which was much faster than a traditional semester at a university. Happy to say I am done with this course and my degree. My advice is take your time listen and read the materials carefully.

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.
