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!
by Theresa E. on April 9, 2017
I liked the course but ProctorU is terrible, took 52 minutes to set up before the test. Identifying questions had nothing to do with me therefore needed a second ID.
Sophia replied on April 11, 2017

Theresa - thank you for your feedback. We will review your incident with ProctorU to determine how it could have been avoided. Photo ID and verification questions are used to ensure academic integrity needed for credit approval/recommendation. Thank you, and we hope to see you in a future Sophia course.

Thanks, I learned a lot.
by Marcela L. on February 24, 2017
Love Sophia courses, they are easy to use and understand.
by Tonya J. on February 16, 2017
Very complicated, the material doesn't match the questions.
Sophia replied on February 16, 2017

Hi Tonya - thanks for your comment on the course. In our courses, the questions are part of a weaved storyline that goes through the Challenge. The tutorials teach the concepts in a more traditional sense. The assessments are based on more "real life" scenarios and challenge the student to apply the concepts. Our team of Learning Coaches is here to help when questions may not be clear, or students need assistance finding the right content. We hope to get a chance to work with you in a future Sophia course. Thank you!

Great class
by Hillary L. on January 15, 2017
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.


  • 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.
