Sophia Courses on a High School Transcript

Using Sophia courses in your homeschool? This chart will help you record those courses and award the proper amount high school credit.

Sophia Courses = Potential College Credit

Sophia college courses are in a different category than college courses you take directly through a college. Sophia is a business, not a college, so completing a Sophia courses in high school won’t generate a college transcript. College credit that doesn’t generate a college transcript (CLEP, DSST, AP, Sophia, Studycom, Straighterline, Saylor Academy, Coopersmith, Davar, OnlineDegree, Lumerit, and others) are technically “potential” college credit and therefore are recorded on your high school transcript more like high school courses than how you’d record college courses. Unlike college courses, if your student fails any of these courses, you can leave them off your high school transcript completely.

The following is my recommendation, but as the homeschool administrator, you have the ultimate authority to award any credit or grade for any of these courses.
