    Don't have any experience with online schools, but I would check to see if different junior colleges are offering their course work online. I registered for 1 last year and I have 3 lined up this spring. They work for me because of my work schedule.

    What subject are you trying to get into? A degree isn't required for everything.

    Online degrees are s---. You're better off getting involved in MOOCs that grant a certificate: http://www.openculture.com/free_certificate_courses

    I know you THINK you are doing something to better yourself, but you're really not. You're better off saving your money and time. The way I see it, you have a few options.

    1. Get a new job with hours that are conducive to night school / day school depending.
    2. Quit your job and go to school full time, if possible
    3. If going to school online, actually complete a real university's online program - not some paper mill.
