Great course!Thank you Sophia!!

The content was good and I enjoyed the course, but I wish it was made clearer that each essay takes about a week to have graded - and you can't submit other essays until you get previous ones back. Knowing all this would have helped me plan my time better so I wouldn't have needed an extension.

Excellent course. This is a very technical approach to writing composition, English technique, and grammar. Some parts of it are a little overwhelming, the quizes and content definitely require attention to detail, but the Touchstones and writing opportunities were fabulous. Additionally, the feedback from instructors was supportive, nurturing, helpful, and allowed room for growth! Overall, this was a great course.

5 written assignments in one course & milestones are still required? Plus the inability to submit an assignment until the previous one is graded is ridiculous. They take entirely too long to grade the essays for us to have to wait for the feedback.

The course was interesting, but the grading of the essays was very confusing and inconsistent.

by Tracy G. on June 23, 2019
I feel the writing assignments where graded unfairly and a bit harshly. I met the requirements of the assignment and the feedback seemed to be a bit nit picking

The instructor was very diligent about providing feedback but failed to realize this is a freshman level (entry level) English course and was grading as if were a highly advance class.

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.
