I think honesty is always the best policy in situations like this. My first question would be, did your employer verify your education when they hired you? If you falsely provided a degree to your employer that you didn't actually receive, they may ask you to resign. But, if they never verified your degree or if it wasn't a hard requirement for the job then I don't see any concerns. I would recommend that you come forward to your manager with this and explain that you have to go back to school to complete a couple of courses. Before resigning from your job, I would see if there is an opportunity for you to take the classes online or on evenings/weekends. Or, if there is any flexibility in your work schedule so you can stay employed and also complete the courses.
