You can start by assessing where you are, and comparing it with where you want to get. For example, in answering the question "What schools should I be looking into?", you can start by drawing up a list of schools that you can go to. Which ones will accept you, which ones offer programs that interest you, which ones can you afford? By eliminating any that won't work, and weighing the remainder, you should have a short list of possible schools. Then, you can look into each of these, including websites and talking with staff, to determine how to proceed to register and attend school.
If you know of any impeding blocks, such as transcripts on hold, go into the offices and inquire until you have found and resolved the issues.
