I have been going to school, and all of the programs I got into got cancelled and were not funded. I want something that is fast, sadly enough. Later on I could figure out things that I enjoy or have side activities and jobs. Anyway, could I get a secretary job with just a certificte and no degree?

You can get a secretarial job with no degree whatsoever, but not a very good one! There’s no ‘standard’ education for that sort of thing, and every little bit of education you get will help you land a better job.
If you have the patience, I still recommend getting a four year degree… but if you don’t, then at least getting the certificate will get you a better job than you’d get without it.

@koveline: I disagree that you wouldn’t be able to get a “decent” job without a degree.
At my old firm, we were always open to people who didn’t hold degrees and paid them pretty well.
I do think you might have better luck starting out as a receptionist and moving up from there, though.
