Why do you need one?  What do you want to do as a second career?

Do you know what you're interested in? If so, you can start with taking Udemy courses in what interest you for FREE or take MOOC courses that are into the field of study you want to get into. There are many universities that offer these for non-credit, literally hundreds of courses to choose from.

If you are interested in getting something in higher education, you might want to take smaller steps such as a Nanodegree or a MicroMasters as long as it offers credits towards a potential masters. Or if you already know it's something that's already offered as a competency based masters, go for it...

All four of my parents (mine and my wife's) went to Big 10 schools, got free rides through college, all became teachers, all got free rides through their Masters degrees, and all retired as teachers. My parents went to Purdue, hers went to Michigan. Neither family provided a thin dime for college to our generation and I am the only one of three children that has a BA/BS and can do a Masters at this point. The bulk of my credits are Psychology, History, and Literature & Writing.
BA Liberal Arts in 2014 from Excelsior College.
Certificate in Writing in 2018 from University of Washington.
