This is what I meant. If I want to become a network technician I just pay 300+€ and get a cisco diploma.

But you got to think. Networks is pretty nice if you want a good future in the next couple of years but after that your career is stuck. All that money that you spent in college to be a technician for many years or do you want to climb the ladder much quicker? Your education is important so, if you have enough, don't be afraid to spend in order to get better education (I'm not saying that 1) is bad education!)

Of course we're not arguing, we're just helping the kid to decide
US tends to be less vocationally oriented in its education in my experience. Really, an undergrad degree from a US university doesn't pigeonhole you at all. People get masters degrees in computer science without even having a bachelors in CS. Since OP isn't sure what he wants to do, the program that is closer to home and seems better looks like a more appropriate fit.

I see what you're saying now, the problem is I do not have enough $$$ lol. Not unless I can get a student loan which I could try anyway, but I might have to work part time instead and rent somewhere closer to the school?! Ahh thats another planning again lol. I never worked and went to school full time before so I dont really know what to expect If I could manage my time. I really want to be successful this coming school year.

Yea that basically sums up what I was trying to say. For most jobs, as long as you have the credentials on your resume when you apply for a job you wont have to keep renewing certs. If a job wants you to do so, they usually pay for it.
