Have an Answer?
It's going to be tough, but it's going to be worth it.
First, some motivation: Les Brown - It's possible
Try the two resources below to determine if you've considered all options in funding your college education.
1. Paying for college
2. Funding Your Education
Some organizations/companies will pay for your school; from my experience, this tends to be larger organizations/companies. Figure out which field you want to work in and try to find an employer that offers some form of tuition reimbursement (i.e. banks, hospitals, public institutions, etc.). Worse case scenario, you have to get a student loan.
Are you going for your Associate's, Bachelor's or Master's degree? Have you decided what you want to do or what you want to major in?
You mentioned the need to quit your second job; I'm going to assume it's because of potential or actual scheduling conflicts. One possible solution is to consider distance/online education - it will offer you flexibility in managing your time. There are several reputable and accredited schools that offer distance/online education. You can start your search here: http://www.geteducated.com/.
I hope this helps and good luck!
