  • I'd start with your community colleges and see what programs they offer. They tend to be less expensive, but great. There are grants and loans. Look up the college websites and they should have financial aid links. Best wishes to you!

  • Hi Amandaberry26,
    I can tell you what I do. I go to school online at Axia. I'm studying Business Administration and Management. As for as my income I am an Independent Business Owner with Ameriplan. Yes I go to school and work all at home. You may want to look into some online university's to see if they offer what your wanting to do. If you have any questions, just ask.

  • There is a pell grant you can apply for to help pay for school. I went to back to school when my youngest was in 3rd grade. Best thing I ever did for me and my family

  • My sister-in-law recently decided the same thing. She quit her regular job, and got a job at a hospital so she'd be around nursing all of the time. She is taking classes online.
