I have planned on two different online universities. One is Regis University and the other University of Maryland University College. They are both non-profit and regionally accredited. I turn 33 in April of this year. I can't hold back on my education any longer. Also both online universities have regular physical campuses too. It's not a online only degree mill. 

 

The community college is 20-30 minutes away from me one way. I get to network with my peers as time goes on. Also I did attend community college right after high school but I was both young and stupid at that time that I didn't care about college and got bad grades from not attending. 

 

Of course I'm a totally different person now. It would be nice to say that I went back and finished my community college. I'm not really sure on what to do this at this point. 

 

I will be getting my Bachelor degree in Computer Science if you are wondering.

Go for community college, although Online virtual universities/colleges are so much convenient & offering many facilities, but there are certain limits.
