Talking about her education, after completing high school, Sophia got enrolled in Pepperdine University in 2014 to study finance with a major in computer science.

Likewise, she also worked as a Junior Class president at the university. During this time, Hutchins passed many policies advocating for international students, financial literacy and social justice. Before going through the transition process, she resigned from her post of president.
The transition from Scott to Sophia
In 2016, Hutchins announced her transition from male to female while she was at Pepperdine University. She was inspired by the retired Olympic gold medal winner Caitlyn Jenner to live her truth. Watching him transfer from Bruce to Caitlyn motivated her to do the same. She experienced gender dysmorphia at the age of five. Hutchins felt that she was a female confined in a male body.

This announcement came after she resigned from her post as junior class president. She decided to take a semester break in order to focus on her physical, social, and emotional transition. She revealed about the thoughts she had in mind regarding her decision as:
“ I’ve always had the question of ‘Do I want to transition from male to female?’ I never thought a lot about doing it until I got into college because I was able to break away from my family and started to establish my own identity. College gave me the time to deal with a lot of issues that had always been there.”
Sophia successfully completed her journey from Scott to Sophia in 2017. After her transition, she went back to college and completed her education.
