You have -some completed college credits, but you never finished college because other life obligations knocked you off your initial path to pursue your college degree. You have been employed for many years in the same role, but in order to advance your career to a managerial role, you must obtain a Bachelor's degree. You are weighing your options, and are a bit frazzled about where to start your search for the right college.
