The word usage in some of the questions was not the best choice and somewhat misleading.

Some of the questions throughout the program could be worded a little better to help the user in understanding what the question is asking.

Overall it was okay. The only one that I didn't give 5/5 stars after taking 4 courses. It serves its purpose but the wording and confusing way they ask questions is just not productive. Some of the questions they ask are very vague. That's okay if you had solid definitions and explanations, but you don't. You spend more time trying to find definitions they did not mention than actually learning something. It's really frustrating. I would still recommend it, but they need to adjust some things.

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.
