What about being an actuary? It's math based and it pays fairly well. Not so sure how plentiful jobs like that are around here, but if you can pull it off, you wouldn't need to go back to school and you would have a good paying job.

I currently work in a call center and I really want to get out of that space and do something that I want. Any suggestions on universities?
what kind of job are you looking for? As a full time employee who wants to change career path, he/she should 1st decide what's their dream job and then find out which skills are needed to get the dream job and then find out available options.
