Need Aid For Undergraduate Bachelor's Degree Education

I am working full time while trying to make it through a four year degree program to earn my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science.  I am majoring in General Information Technology while leaning towards Networking.  My ultimate goal is to eventually create and manage a company that works with contractors to create assisted living smart homes for the elderly and the physically impaired.  I feel this will create a sense of security for the residents as well as their families.  I do not want to stop at a remote control that shuts lights out from one location.  I want to include voice recognition, automatic lighting, vehicle recognition, etc.  I also want to make this an affordable solution rather than an unattainable project.  I plan on becoming certified in many areas of Networking & Security and will acquire these titles as necessary for the position.  Currently, tuition is $1743 per 6 credit course with one course being paid via Federal Aid.  My Federal Aid worksheets show that I should be able to pay for anything beyond this (including all books, supplies, room & board, etc.) from my own pocket - I can't as I'm sure many other college attendees can't.  I've applied for alternative loans but, have failed to secure these loans due to not having a co-signer.  I do not have anyone that can co-sign the loan.  As you can see - I have a dilemma.  I would like to take on two courses, at least, per quarter and would prefer eventually three in order to complete my degree sooner.  I am searching for any type of aid available to help me with my career goals.  I am married and have two younger dependents, a house payment, two vehicle payments, etc.  (I'm sure many others do, too).
