I really enjoyed using Sophia. It was SO nice to be able to make this course work for me and my schedule, instead of the other way around. I will definitely be using Sophia again! The proctored exam for the last ID milestone was a little strange, but I'm glad that Sophia takes academic honesty (and dishonesty) that seriously while still being able to provide flexibility for students.

Learned a lot in this course that I was able to put into practice right away. Definitely recommend if you work on any projects no matter what field you may work in.

some questions are asking something, and multiple answers could be right. I did not like how that was set up, but it allowed me to succeed in the course

Hi Jacob -- You likely noticed that each question comes with a "Submit Feedback" link. Students can use that link to request a review or challenge a wrong answer. Those submissions are promptly reviewed and addressed by our staff. Congratulations on your achievement, and we hope to see you again.

The flow of the class was nice as I was able to work at my own speed. I did find some of the questions being asked in the milestones and smaller quizzes to be a little to difficult to find the correct answers. I may or may not consider taking another course with Sophia.

Loved every bit of this course! Self-paced, thorough tutorials, with different types to choose from based on MY learning style, and quick response from the staff! I'm upset that I didn't find Sophia sooner!

This was my first online course ever. I found that I liked the flexibility and the ability to work at my own speed. The video tutorials were actually quite easy to follow and I enjoyed learning a lot of new information.

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.
