I still would like to be able to ask questions on what I am learning and also some of questions should be worded better. Thank you

This course was both interesting and informative in most areas. Though it is my belief that some of the questions when it comes to grey area situations are to open to interpretation and even the "learning coaches?" don't seem to really understand the topics being discussed; to an extent they can explain the why the answer is the answer.

Great course! Easy to understand and navigate. However, a handful of questions in the challenges were tricky to answer because of their wording.

This was a great course! The information learned in the course will be very valuable in the future!

The tutorials are good but there were several questions with errors or more than one objectively correct answer but only arbitrarily accepted one of them. The final milestone in particular needs to be fixed.

The information was great. Some of the Milestone questions wording were confusing and in some cases were items not discussed in the tutorials

Great class and the proctored exam was not bad. Love Sophia courses.

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, 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.
