The course was fine. I didn't have a preferred instructor but they all had similar information so it worked for me. The bad part is the ID verification after you've completed all the milestones. I understand there has to be some type of verification for online courses but after my first ProctorU exam, I felt like I was being arrested or something. The experience was awful, it 45 minutes from the time my milestone was to begin, to actually be able to take the exam because of all the verification. And God forbid if your child or anyone else happens to walk in the room while you're taking it. I can honestly say, if I have to go through all of that to complete every course, I will no longer take any courses through this program.

This class was difficult but the tutorials were extremely clear and helpful. I would not watch the instructor Victoria, she is slow and not as clear.

There were several mistakes on the practice quizzes which made it difficult to assess progress.

I loved the way the course was presented and being able to work at my own pace. Evan McLaughlin was a great instructor. I am looking forward to the next class I am scheduled to take through Sophia.

Math/Accounting is not my strong suit but this is an outstanding course. Sophia has taken out all of the stops and is totally dedicated to student success. The coaches are very patient and always available to assist. Thank you, Sophia!!

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.
