Higher education has always had a high price tag but there are ways you can gain the knowledge you need along with an official credential from the institution and signed by the instructor. The certificate verifies your achievement and can be used to highlight skills on your resume or LinkedIn profile.
You can do this from the comfort of your own home with a computer and internet connection. Check out edX.org and find the courses you want to take!
