Personally I’d hold off on getting a new license until you’ve paid off your current student loans. See if you can get a raise in the position that you’re in for now, and once your loans are paid off you can decide if you’d like to go back to school at that point.

Before I opened this post, I was going to say, “Heck yes!”  But I agree with MrsMcGyro: pay off what you owe first.  Having an accounting degree would be really good, but going into more debt would not be good. 

Is there any way you can qualify for a grant of some kind?  That would be one way to to go back to school and not incur any more debt.

So, an alternate opinion… Is there any chance you can take classes at a community college to get basic pre-requisites out of the way before getting a BA or AA in Accountancy? Even if you could take one night/online class at a time while you pay down your other loans, it seems like you could at least make progress on the accounting thing, if you know that’s where you want to go eventually anyway.

A lot of people aren’t going to school full-time these days and work full-time while taking a few classes here and there. It’s just another option!

Would your current job give you any aid to take some of the required courses?
