The University of Illinois finally answered my requests to finish my Master's Degree. I just have to re-enroll and pay for 4 credit hours but not attend any extra classes. Then they will help me put together a closure project based on a Communication aspect of my current work. All of my former professors are gone and 90% of the classes I once took are not being offered. In short...no one remains that knows anything about what I was once studying. But they still want to let me get my degree so I'll take it. Looking at having my degree by next Spring. Then I can start a PhD program somewhere.
