This was probably one of the hardest Sophia course I've taken. I didn't feel that the challenges adequately prepared me for the questions on the milestones.
by Jasmine C. on August 15, 2019
Took 6 days, it was good!
by Mark G. on August 8, 2019
Vague questions with unclear expectations. When I challenged questions on a Milestone, I got no answers in a reasonable amount of time. When i did get answers, all they were were definitions I had already read in the tutorials spat back at me. No EXPLANATION. Course made sense and I did learn a lot, so it wasn't a complete wash.

you get what you pay for - not worth full price. questions in the challenges are easy and the milestones are something like: if you throw a hockey puck on mars who is the next president of mazedonia.
by Melissa S. on August 5, 2019
Worst class I've taken on Sophia. Very hard to search tutorials because they weren't able to be downloaded as PDF's. Questions were worded strangely in relation to the actual course information.
by Quintin c. on July 27, 2019
This was fun and informative
by Jacob B. on July 22, 2019
Having the videos all being short seemed inefficient for me, the time it takes for me to click back then choose the next video then maximize my screen then listen to the introduction again was wasteful. I would have benefited more from a single one hour lecture.
by Jairo G. on July 15, 2019
Difficult but satisfying course. I love Sophia Pathway courses. I wish I could take every course I need through them.


  • 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.

Oh no. Please don't go.
