Higher education partnerships

Attract new students and help current students persist

Sophia partners with 40 colleges and universities to make earning a degree affordable and accessible for students. Our self-paced courses provide students with the flexibility they need to help complete their degrees.

Sophia has helped Capella University [an affiliate of Sophia] provide more flexible learning opportunities. Using Sophia, students take online courses during our scheduled quarter breaks and occasionally as an add-on during terms. Having the start anytime, complete at your-own-pace courses has assisted many students in advancing toward their degree on a schedule that fits their needs.

The DEAC is a national accrediting organization that evaluates distance education curriculum. The Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education recognize the DEAC as a trusted distance education authority.
