Get an easy major then lol. I don't recommend it, but if you really don't want to college.
College really isn't as valuable as it used to be, especially for people like us around here with who bring heaping portion of passion and experience to the table. I just started at a fairly highly-ranked university, and it's not really providing the challenge or the educational worth that I had hoped for. I ended up dropping a class to make more time for independent learning and programming work. I'm also getting involved with a sweet research project, which'll hopefully lead to cooler things in the future.
The only reason I'm putting up with my poorly taught and organized classes is because of the opportunities on campus--research, clubs, connections--if I left I don't know if I'd be able to make it without a piece of paper with a few signatures on it to let people know I'm competent.
I envy your situation, 4ur, you've got a solid project and a definite plan. You're self-motivated enough where you can take classes online and read textbooks to learn all you'll ever need to know, so I say do what you love to do and see where it takes you. Much respect, man.
On a related note, everyone should watch this.
