In today's job market, you can't afford not to get a degree. Upon reaching a certain stature within a company, personal experience can only go so far when compared to a colleague who has a college degree. When considering whether or not you want to brave college again, distance learning is an admirable option. An online degree can be obtained on your own time and offer the same programs and structures as on-campus classes. If you think you will have trouble catching up again with college coursework, speak with the college's advisors.
