I suppose it depends on where you live but in my neck of the woods one of the community colleges is a 4 year school and offers a mix of in-person and
online classes that are affordable (compared to private institutions). However, in my wife's experience even the online classes aren't exactly
"cheap" because they still make you purchase the newest editions of the textbooks.
There are also some affordable city colleges in this area (but again, not sure if that is the same where you are).
I don't want to create thread drift but something in your post reminded me of something I've seen a lot of that troubles me.
Clearly your Director has complete confidence in your abilities, since he wants to bring you into management. It also seems that the act of returning
to school is for the sake of returning to school (since he didn't really care WHAT degree you obtained, as long as you obtained one). I think this is
one of those things that cause people to spend money on education for the sake of spending money.
I am basing this statement entirely on the single post you used in the OP .... but .... I suspect you have a good head on your shoulders so you won't
overspend and will do what you have to do in order to advance and in my opinion, that is a good move.
Best wishes and good luck. Keep climbing that ladder!
