So...have you signed up for Autodesk University yet? There is still time! There are plenty of great open classes left for you to sign up for! You don't want to miss out on all the learning and networking that AU Las Vegas has to offer.
So have a bake sale, or a car wash - whatever it takes to raise the funds to get yourself to AU! It just won't be the same without you.
(If I lived closer I'd make cupcakes for your Bake Sale...)
