Go Back to College at any Age: Over 50 and College. If you are over 50, most likely it has been years since you've been in school. Perhaps you never went to college or took some college classes early on, only to withdraw as life and work became increasingly demanding -- leaving little room to pursue your degree.
Subsequently, one may also ask, is 45 too old to go back to college?
Not only is it not too late to go back to school at 45, but there is also support for non-traditional or post-traditional students at many community colleges and universities. Some of my fellow students ask me for tips to help their parents return to school. And yes, there is FAFSA for older students too.
Additionally, is it ever too late to go back to college?
It's never too late to earn a degree. A college education is a smart investment — and one that is not bound by age. Today's colleges and universities recognize an incredible opportunity to educate adult and returning students.
Is it too late to go back to school at 25?
First, 25 is absolutely not too late to go back. I've had friends across all age ranges go back to school, and for a number of different reasons. People not only start school later than their peers for different reasons, but they also go back to school later in life to change careers or to upgrade skills or knowledge.
