There would certainly be some type of financial assistance for you, mainly to help pay for the classes. It sounds as though some type of through-the-mail or online degree would be best for you, so you can do your work whenever you have time.

Good luck!

I'd agree with everyone's online idea. And there is good news, scholarships are starting to open up for online classes depending on the school you enroll in. First, decide what you want to do. (For my cousin, she wanted to be a psychologist. However, with 4 kids, she had no money/time for such an undertaking. She took business management online so she'd get a promotion at work. With the extra money she could afford day care and start her degree in Psychology). Find a school that fits your needs financially and academically. Second, are you living the cheapest way possible now? If there is anything you can cut back on, even for a month, it will add up. Third, what are your bills? Can you go on a payment plan? Can you get a reduced rate? (worked for my utilities) Fourth, don't be ashamed to ask for help. There are people/organizations that are out there specifically to help you succeed. And have you asked family? Is there anyone you know that could watch the kids for cheaper fare/free? Fifth, are you eligible for a better paying job? Spend 20 mins skimming the want ads on Sundays. Apply to any job you think you could do. Try it. You may just get what you're asking for.

Keep your eyes and mind open. Don't lose hope or your cool. Remember you are doing this for your family, and you CAN do it. We believe in you.

Good Luck.

Do some checking around.  There are ways of obtaining assistance to get this done and you should use as many of them as you can.  There are federal and private programs that will both assist you and one of your jobs might also pay part of the tuition fees.  I would also say try to do this without student loans.  They will hamper you in the future.  There is a lot of money available in grants and such to cover this and you may be able to get a free babysitter service, etc. during this period if you do a lot of research on programs available to you.

I applaud, your wanting to go back to school, and get your degree, so that you can get a better job, to give your children a better life.

As for on-line schools, most employers won't accept those degrees, because they are not in a sense actual colleges, but most colleges do offer the chance to take courses at home, on-line,  I strongly recommend that you check with your local college, and see if they have this available to you.

bypass date him. first of all, you should comprehend that as a way to enable love into your life back, you should consider the hazards that come into relationship someone. You open your self to a range of of opportunities, per chance a range of of elegance or a range of of soreness, even if that is area of the adventure. in case you're as a lot because the mission of relationship and likely love, then I recommend that you should bypass for it. There aren't any written guidelines and limits that govern human beings from relationship and loving. So what once you've a baby and became divorced? It does no longer recommend that you could't be loved. also, do no longer use your career and as excuse to no longer date adult males because in case you particularly pick something, then you'll seek for the thanks to do something about it. even if, in the experience that your doubts and concerns overpower and prevent you from relationship up until eventually on the present time, then you are purely no longer waiting for relationship and love, it really is comprehensible because you've gone through the pains and pangs of divorce. Regaining believe and self belief to the alternative sex back after divorce is definitely confusing, so that is mandatory to take each and each and every of the time you want. to respond to your very last question, bounce into the proverbial fireplace and verify out the waters to be certain.

try an at home course such as medical transcription, you can earn a great deal of money and work from home with your computer,  my friend does this and makes a very good income, this will save you on gas for your car plus wear and tear, you don't have to dress up for work and you are there for your kids and don't have to pay a babysitter.
