I shouldn't have to watch/read every tutorial in order to find an answer. I don't like watching the videos, I prefer the Sophia tutorials. Thus, reading the tutorial and then watching 3 different people say more or less the same thing with a few minor differences while ONLY looking for those minuscule differences is absurd. This happened to me multiple times during this course. Also, spell check and simplify how some questions are phrased. It makes it much harder to get the answer correct when I can't even understand the question.

Hi Hayley. Congratulations on your successful course completion! As you likely noticed, each question comes with a link you can use to submit feedback directly to our Learning Coach team. We are here to help clarify questions and/or content as you go through the course. We hope to see you again in a future Sophia course.

Course was relatively easy and I did learn a lot, but I did find the material boring.

I found that some of the questions on the milestones would come from the unit following that milestone. I read one unit at a time so this was aggravating when you run up on a question you haven't studied yet.

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.
