Here are the deets on the degree program I want to do.  It's a two year program and I'm excited.  I wasn't this excited when I started (and stopped) the Bachelor's in Business Administration.  Once this degree is completed, I may be able to expand my job search here.

And so, if I were to take the four classes necessary to get this particular degree started, it's going to cost $810 before classes even start for Spring semester. During my phone call (or possible visit) tomorrow, I'm going to ask what they do with veterans using their GI Bill. Again, I'm looking into taking geometry instead of college algebra. I don't have to worry about that until the second year.
