Information in tutorials did not match answers to questions throughout course.
Sophia replied on November 8, 2017

Jason - Congratulations on your recent course completion! There are multiple tutorials for most questions, so we encourage students to view a question using the "Many Ways" model offered by Sophia. Our team is also here to help when our students have questions on concepts or specific assessment items in the course. We hope to see you again in a future Sophia course. Thank you!

Finished this course in less than 3 days.. final exam wasn't too bad. I have been employed in project management/coordination for over 10 years and we do not use or touch on most of the content.

I really enjoyed the tutorials by the instructor Jeff. The animation made for an entertaining learning experience.

I doubt I do another Sophia course - not because the curriculum is lacking, rather because of your partnership with ProctorU - incompetence doesn't begin to describe the experience - she literally wanted me to pickup a 50 pound Apple computer off my desk and carry it with me around the room to show her my four corners and under my desk... This after she insisted I needed to have a large mirror to show her my monitor screens - I did everything I could to try and make this process smooth, but in the end, I nearly quit the entire process over ProctorU - I was able to finish it and pass my exam - despite her jacking with my computer extensively (took an additional 30 minutes to setup things back up not to mention more than 30 minutes just to get started) - I like the idea of ProctorU, but I will never take a course that uses this service again - very poorly run, when compared to the quality of the Sophia program as a whole.
Sophia replied on June 5, 2017

Hi Michael -- Thank you for sharing your experience. While that is not what we hope, the standard practice is for the proctor to ensure no one else in the room, and your workspace complies with the academic policies that apply to the final exam. We will follow up with ProctorU to see what could have been done differently in this case. On a positive note, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the course material. Congratulations on your successful course completion!

Sophia took a college course that I took twice, and each time struggling, and turned it into a pleasurable learning experience, I especially liked the ability to choose among many lesson presentations to find one that suited me best!


  • 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.
