Through July, your students can take college courses for credit which is transferable to a list of universities and colleges. Sophia offers courses regularly, but due to the current worldwide crisis, they’ve decided to offer some of their college courses for free until July 31, 2020.

what do you get for taking a course?
To find out more, I clicked on U.S. History I as an example. Other courses may have different information, but here is what I found for the U.S. History I course:
- upon completion, 3 semester credits are given
- the credits are guaranteed to transfer to 19 institutions in the partner network, and have been successfully transferred to over 300 institutions
- you have 60 days from your start date to complete the course
- it’s 100% free (through July 2020)

I heard of this offer through a homeschooling friend and wanted to pass it on,
but I have not looked into it deeply and am not familiar with Sophia. So I’m passing this one on to you to do your own homework, and see if it’s a good fit for your family. I also passed it onto our college daughter to see if she could save on a class or two! Our daughter successfully transferred a completed Sofia course to her four-year university! It saved her $1,200 in what she would have paid her university for that course. Read the update here.
