Nervous about Sophia and TESU
#1
I'm very nervous about signing up for Sophia Learning. I intend to transfer my credits from Sophia to TESU; From reading this forum, and visiting their respective sites, I found out that the official credit transfer list between Sophia and TESU was long removed. So I signed up for a trial account at Sophia just to take a look. I went through the course list and non of the courses have TESU listed as an accepting partner. Even widely accepted courses like US History I, English Composition, for example. TESU isn't even on Sophia's official partner list (https://www.sophia.org/transfer-credits/...-partners/) Is their partnership somehow on the way out? The only thing I found regarding credit transfer between them is a tentative list on Degreeforum wiki...https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Sophia.org_Equivalency_List

Thank you!

Here's the thread for the newer Sophia courses that may not be on the one you looked at earlier.


They stopped being on each others page forn a bit now. Take the courses at Sophia. They generally transfer over as the charts say. For the ones not on the chart look at the thread I linked. People are really good about reporting back when something changes or doesnt come in.

Many Schools still take some of the courses regardless of partnership.
Walden University - MBA in progress (but might opt for Graduate Certificate instead)
Edinboro University of PA - BA, Socioloy (1997)
Gannon University - Certificate, Paralegal Studies (2001)
University of South Florida - Certificate, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace (2021)

Other coursework done on Sophia, Saylor Academy and ENEB

Many schools accepted credits from Sophia and they're not partner schools. Being a partner school is not a requirement for ACE credit acceptance at a school. Even partner schools make changes. The link you shared says what transfers to TESU and how it transfers.

I wouldn't worry about Sophia and TESU. They may be ending their partnerships for accreditation reasons but they're still accepting ACE credits and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Be afraid, be very afraid and nervous! For 5 minutes at least - Sophia.org and TESU may not be partners at this time, but they may in the future as they did in the past... That doesn't mean TESU has stopped taking ACE recommended credits from Sophia.org, just like they're not really partners with many ACE/NCCRS providers, they still take their recommendations for credit. You should be fine, like all the current students taking Sophia and any ACE/NCCRS courses, they're just going to have to finish them and transfer them over.
