easy to complete

This was a very hard class. I don't recommend this class if you want your GPA to drop. It's quick and a good pace but very hard.
Sophia replied on January 23, 2020

Congratulations on your successful course completion Jeanita! We should clarify that Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis, and typically do not impact a student's university GPA. We hope you can take advantage of more savings and time, by taking another Sophia course soon! Thank you.

This course was tougher than some of the others offered. I still learned a lot, as always.

This is my third class with Sophia. I truly enjoyed Statistics and College Algebra. I can't say that for Project Management. The milestone questions are written so poorly and very confusing to say the least. Seems as the questions were either written by a non-subject-matter-expert or someone with very poor communication skills. A lot of the answer choices had 2-3 possible correct answers, it was very vague and ambiguous. If I received a high score in a practice milestone, why am I getting such a low score on an actual milestone? That alone is a red flag because it made me wonder if I learned what I needed to learn (quality of education) or if the questions are confusing. I did not document any specific questions but you might look into my final milestone at question 4, I think it's missing the word NOT. I will give Sophia another Chance but taking this class made my experience go from great to bad.

I loved the fact that you had multiple videos to watch as well as a transcription and breakdown of the information. It was so helpful to have options on which videos to watch. Thank you very much.

My favorite of three courses I've taken through Sophia. The questions can get very tricky and sometimes seem like they have multiple possible answers because of the way they are written.


  • Q: What does "Try it for Free" mean?

    A: The Free Trial allows you to access the course of your choice, or multiple courses. It gives you access to the first unit ("Challenge 1") in the course. This will let you meet the course instructors, sample the instructional content, and answer a set of assessment questions in the Challenge. You can also read the Student Guide and watch an Orientation Video to learn more about the course format, requirements, and resources.

    Any work you complete in the Free Trial is saved, so if you decide to register, you do not need to repeat it. Of course, we also let you reset it and start over if you wish.

  • 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. Course tuition is paid by the student, using a credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers a payment plan option for course tuition.

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?

    A: You choose your own course start date and have 60 days from your chosen start date to complete each course. Sophia courses are self-paced, so many students complete a course in less 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 courseroom, and are included in the course tuition.

  • Q: How am I graded in the course?

    A: Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis, with 70% overall required to pass the course. Your score is based upon points earned in the formative assessments ("Challenges"), summative assessments ("Milestones"), and if applicable, the authentic assessments ("Touchstones"). Currently, our Foundations of English Composition, English Composition I, and Public Speaking courses contain Touchstones.

  • 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.

  • Q: Are the tests proctored?

    A: Sophia courses utilize keyboard biometrics as an alternative to proctoring. No webcam is needed for a Sophia course.

  • Q: I'm taking a course where I have to submit Touchstones. How long does it take for my Touchstone to be graded once it's submitted?

    A: We provide our faculty graders with up to 7 business days to grade a Touchstone. The actual time may vary based on volume and grader capacity.

Oh no. Please don't go.
