Sophia, only 2 courses active at one time
#1
Logged in this morning and saw a new landing page layout where it tells you that you may only have two active courses at one time and also giving an option to drop courses.

I had only two active but also have the remainder not done scheduled out. I am curious if once all assignments are being graded and all done that can be done on the student end if they will consider a course complete and allow to start another or if will have to wait for all grading.

I guess I am fixing to find out as they say.

This however is a change that could make a difference as we all try and get the free Sophia courses done.

I am waiting on the final Public Speaking to be graded and no it is not considered completed until I hit submit so I can't add any other classes. God I saw this coming but thought they would make the change tomorrow not today.

I guess one thing to do is not have two courses with assignments that have to be marked active at one time, so you can always complete the one without assignments quicker and on to another.

Totally true, sadly my English Composition I course is in progess and not pretty advanced, im finishing with part 2 of 5... and waiting for the first assignment to be graded...

I actually don't know what to do... i really don't want to drop this course...

I would just finish it out and be proactive. You can chat with them to see if they can grade it faster. 

FYI I dropped two courses as I already have them from a different school, It does not give me the same message for "starting" again compared to one I never added. Imo it probably will require a msg to Sophia to get reactivated if you drop it.

Thank you for your advice,

Actually i get the first assignment grade few minutes ago and i get 46/50!!

I can't believe it, as non-native english speaker i really was expecting really bad grade because my way to write is pretty bad in enligh. So this gives me the motivation to finish this course instead of dropping it.

This won't help folks who already have English Comp Intro, I or II, or Public Speaking open, but it sounds to me like the way to handle this is to bang out the other courses and save those with assignments for last, or open no more than one such course at a time.  With the current promotion, you can get through quite a bit of other coursework while you're waiting for grades, conversely, you can miss out on a staggering number of courses if you're waiting for grading.

There's nothing to stop you from opening a course, starting on the assignments, and then dropping it.  Then when you're down to the last minute, re-take the course and submit the assignments (as many as possible) immediately.  If the next Touchstone is locked, you can ask via chat, email or phone to have it unlocked for submission before the deadline.  In any case, I suspect that they will have to extend the completion dates for folks who have to wait for one assignment to be graded before the next one is submitted, at least in those cases where one assignment is to revise the previous one.

I think that after dropping a course you can re-start it.
