Long time lurker, first time poster. Hello! What does everyone think of the certification programs? I'm 28 and decided I wanted to pursue a BS-CS or BS-IT but I just got done paying off over 5K in old student loans from a CC I never got any credits from or graduated from (young and very dumb). So I really don't want to get back into debt with a certain student loan company again right now. Another big thing for me is I know very little. Most of these BS programs people will tell you it's more for working professionals and people with experience. (They are not lying) I have tried out some BS-CS courses and I felt like it was way over my head, not prepared for a whole degree at all. I even considered just starting from the beginning and getting an Associates of some kind in CS/IT but still unsure. But back on the certifications, If you scroll down through this page I am referring to these programs: https://www.degreeinfo.com/index.php?forums/it-and-computer-related-degrees.18/ Any advice is greatly appreciated.
