I'm 26 next month and have been too afraid to go to school for fear of failure and what not.

Anyway, I went to high school the full 12 years in WA state and even have enough credits to qualify for my high school diploma in AZ, but I moved before I ever graduated in WA (I needed one more credit but parents divorce etc moved me before I could graduate). I never finished here. Instead, I went straight to work.

Im sitting with no ged or diploma. nice right? frown After all the years I put in. Yeah stupid. Trust me, I'm living it. Anyway... I am going to get a degree online which may cost me next to 1000.00 but I wont settle for a GED.

After that, I want to do my undergrad. First of all, does anyone have any experience with colleges accepting online high school diplomas? Secondly, do they offer ONLINE undergrad programs that are good? I just dont have time with my job and life to attend school.

I know its not going "back to college" but well, Im old enough to qualify I guess..

Also... I am in a financial hole right now. Can I finance the loans and pay off after college? Any good financial aid I should be looking for?

If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it!!!
