I second this. Even if you end up moving after you take some classes, you can still normally transfer them to other schools easily. Or plan your degree out with the school you will end up at, and work backwards from there.

So make sure you are actually getting a "deal" when you take courses at the conveniently located school there, they certainly weren't in my opinion.
Take a look at online schools we talk about here (The Big 3, WGU and other competency-based programs), look at taking CLEP and DSST exams, etc. There are probably plenty of options to get your degree so that you have it before your big move back home and can find an even better job than you planned.
