I’m looking for advice from anyone working for an associates degree or higher, or that has one: I want to get a degree of some kind, but I don't have the grades or the SAT score to get into a 4-year school. I'm curious what my options will be with an AA degree program, and I'd like to hear from anyone who is enrolled in, or has graduated with one.
Good job SassyMama, and good for you JannieVanny for looking into going back to school. I am in the same boat and am currently looking into inexpensive schools that I can get into NOW and then transfer the credits I earn into a 4-year program. 4-year schools cost more, but I can save money now by getting some of the required credits out of the way now through either an online school (I am leaning this way) or a community college. Here is where I got the idea from: Is Community College Right For You? | What is Community College?

Reason: I thought I mis-spelled community!
Community college is a great opportunity for advancement! I was naive in high school and did not take the ACT or the SAT so at first I was disappointed that I would only be able to get into community college. It has worked out great and I love the flexibility of it! Good luck with your goals!
I also didn't have the grades for a 4 year school, and I had never taken the SAT's. Instead, I opted to go to a community college first, and then transfer in to the four year after I have taken everything I can at the community college. It ended up meaning 3 years at the community college instead of two because I took more than required, but I worked with both schools to make sure it all transfers, and it is saving me a ton of money in the long run. It has also shortened the time I will have to be at the 4 year school.
Good luck with pursuing your education and welcome to the group!
