I stated $24,000 for tuition, and $14,000 for "cost of living" for the area the school was located in - as far as Penn State ( your IP look up should have nailed me as being in Ohio ), they require 2 years undergraduate study THAN 4 years normal course work @ $31,000 per year tuition ( got to pay off those lawsuits some how ) .

A full college education at a university today is about $100,000. The people saying it's not that expensive!!!! are in-state residents that are getting 2/3rd of their education paid for by the government. If you attend a private university, are an out-of-state resident, or a foreign national then you pay full price.
Do you have any college credit within that last 7 years? (After a while it stops counting and you have to start over.)
Or do you have an associates degree?
Then you can skip the first two years at the university; you have to take placement test, ace them, and have your transcript sent to the university.
So ... your first goal is become a state resident. I believe you have to live in the state for 2 years if you are a US citizen.
If you're not a citizen then you become a citizen first, then a state resident.
Once you are a state resident then you can attend a public university.
