At my age I didn't want to spend the next 4-10 years going to college classes after work. I have mentioned this in a few popsts but wanted to share this on a new thread so that everyone can find out how easy and cheap it can be to go to college.
I am studying online with CUNY (City University of NY). Tuition is $2165 per semester if you take 4 or more classes. (I am taking 6 this semester to finish up and graduate on June 10th.)
The beauty of this program is that they allow you to test out of many subjects using CLEP exams. I think many xJWs should be able to do pretty well on many of these exams and each exam you pass ($65 for a 90 minute exam) gives you 3 college credits. I took 25 exams, which saved me from over 2 1/2 years of college.

Working full-time I have been able to do the whole thing in a little over a year. Now that I don't go to meetings or service, I have even more time to study.
Don't mope that you never went to college... check it out!!!
