Check your state universities for online classes. Or start out taking Gen Ed courses through a community college that will get you transferable credits.
I even took some classes that were mostly online, with two live classes a month.

I was a weapons repairer so not the most transferable skills to the civilian world, but i do like the breaking down of things and diagnosing problems.

have you considered working part time and going to school full time? I just finished my masters going full time while working a part-time job. I sucked sometimes not having much of a social life, but I got through it and I"m glad I did. I think sacrificing your income now to get a degree is wise because your earning potential with a degree with increase dramatically.

Thats my dilemma do i go all out and go to school fulltime credits wise and work fulltime.

Partime school/ full time job

or Full time school/ part time job.

the problem with going to a traditional brick and mortar for me is traveling distance roughly 1 1/2 away for the nearest university.

ah i see, that's a bummer about the distance. Unless you could get a job at the university and work around your school schedule? I'm not sure if they would have jobs like that or how much they would pay, but it might be worth looking into. You'd be surprised how many programs cater to working adults too, so you might look into a program that allows you to go just in the evenings, or programs that you take all your classes two days a week, which would allow you to work the other three.

I don't know what the BAH rate is where you're at, but I would go to school full time and work part time. You said you already receive disability and that covers your mortgage. The BAH would help off set your loss of income with working part time. Have you talked to the VA about your GI Bill benefits yet?
