College Degree with limited resources?

I need to go back to school. Can anyone point me to the resources that I need to find to do so? I am desiring to pursue a degree in photography. I have college experience for sure, but I am overwhelmed by the options and the procedure. Also I don't have much money.

Right out of highschool I went to college and I studied something that I didn't end up liking, had a miserable time, combined with a complete nervous breakdown, and ended up dropping out. After a year or so I went to the local community college and excelled in photography and art but eventually ended up lacking the resources to continue. The upside is that now I am in good standing with financial aid as I maintained good grades in the photo program. Now I want a degree. I have lots of debt and am trying to figure out where to start. I know that my photography is good, and I wonder if there are any programs that I can find that may offer a scholarship. But, as I said before, the problem is is that I am not sure where to start, frankly the system is feeling a little Kafkaesque to me right now. Can anyone point me in the right direction or give me the information I need about getting money for college? I've done tons of googling but it seems like the results are dubious at best. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
