I was glad this class was available on this platform; however, this was a poorly presented class. Terms were not consistent throughout, specifically from the course material to the milestones. It made it difficult to know what I was trying to comprehend. This is not an easy course for people not 'wired' for this sort of thing, and not having things clearly laid out made it challenging. The way credits and debits was taught was so confusing - so opposite of what we learn in other areas of our life, it can be improved upon for incoming students. This did not seem like an entry course, and I was hoping it would be broken down more like an entry level class so I could actually learn from it. While I was able to pass it, I often felt like I was 'throwing darts' to get the right answers. The charts I needed to identify on milestones were not like the graphics I was shown in the course work - just so many places I felt lost in this course. I think lots of room for improvement.

I learned a ton! You have several options of lectures from different instructor's, which was super helpful. It was very difficult and the final milestone was easier than the end-of-unit milestones, so that was a relief. There are a couple of questions that were worded differently than in the exams, and a couple of trick questions. Overall, I have a deeper respect for accounting professionals now! Good Luck!

Accounting is challenging but written to be clear and understanding with the topics.

This was an easy to learn class, the only thing that could make it better is more practice question for the formula related competencies.

FAQ

  • Q: What does "Try it for Free" mean?

    A: The Free Trial allows you to access the course of your choice, or multiple courses. It gives you access to the first unit ("Challenge 1") in the course. This will let you meet the course instructors, sample the instructional content, and answer a set of assessment questions in the Challenge. You can also read the Student Guide and watch an Orientation Video to learn more about the course format, requirements, and resources.

    Any work you complete in the Free Trial is saved, so if you decide to register, you do not need to repeat it. Of course, we also let you reset it and start over if you wish.

  • 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. Course tuition is paid by the student, using a credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers a payment plan option for course tuition.

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?

    A: You choose your own course start date and have 60 days from your chosen start date to complete each course. Sophia courses are self-paced, so many students complete a course in less 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 courseroom, and are included in the course tuition.

  • Q: How am I graded in the course?

    A: Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis, with 70% overall required to pass the course. Your score is based upon points earned in the formative assessments ("Challenges"), summative assessments ("Milestones"), and if applicable, the authentic assessments ("Touchstones"). Currently, our Foundations of English Composition, English Composition I, and Public Speaking courses contain Touchstones.

  • 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.

  • Q: Are the tests proctored?

    A: Sophia courses utilize keyboard biometrics as an alternative to proctoring. No webcam is needed for a Sophia course.

  • Q: I'm taking a course where I have to submit Touchstones. How long does it take for my Touchstone to be graded once it's submitted?

    A: We provide our faculty graders with up to 7 business days to grade a Touchstone. The actual time may vary based on volume and grader capacity.

Oh no. Please don't go.
