And I have had 'Beauty School Dropout' from Grease in my head ever since.

I dropped out of college with one class to go. How do I go about taking that one class four years later?

I had one class left to take in the second semester of senior year when I was offered a very good job in my field. I took the job and just stopped going to college. I was living off campus at the time, so I just...never registered for that semester. I couldn't afford it anymore, anyway. Now, four years later, I want to officially complete my degree. How do I do this? I honestly have no idea. Who do I talk to at the university? Any idea what this will cost? Where do I begin? I don't know who (else, besides mefi) to ask for guidance.
Possible complication: I was really, really terrible at school. Just awful. My transcript is...yeech. Will they even take me back? Can I take the class at a community college and transfer the credits? It's a low-level math class that I'm missing.
I don't care about walking at graduation or anything like that, I just want to close that door. Throwaway email: firstname.lastname@example.org
