I'll eventually go get my AS or BS, but I refuse to go into debt to do so.

I managed to do it without going into debt - except for a couple quarters that I put on my credit card, which I paid off before the quarter was over. After that, I requested that my employers pay for for my school. The first one did it, no questions asked. The second one did it, but required that I get at least a C or better, which was reasonable.

If your skills are valuable to your employer, you may be able to work out a deal. By paying for your school, they escape certain taxes that they would have to pay if they paid the money to you directly, and you get the benefit of having your school paid for in tax-free dollars. Everybody wins!
