    Absolutely not..you can study at any age and maturity brings its own set of valuable insights.

    If you weigh out your options and that seems like the best idea, then that is an easy yes. No one will make fun of you or getting a degree.

    25 is Old!!! smile You are never too late to start college, my mom did hers at forty, I had a couple of people who studied with me, well past their mid thirties..

    My best wishes to you!

    By no means is it too old, hell I'm 24 and I just started taking my basics figure if I start now and I take it head on I'll be able to finish by the time I'm 28ish if not sooner!   Take the plunge it's one you will never regret!

    Never. The average age in community colleges run as high as thirty something.

    It is NEVER too old to start college!  There are so many options, you can choose whatever fits best into your life.  I think college is a great thing.  I love learning and if I could afford it, I would be in college for life.  smile

    Oh Lord....we need to talk! I was 26 when I quit my full-time job as an assistant buyer (which by the way I HATED!) and went back to school to finish my undergrad degree in psychology. What should have taken me 2.5 years full-time ended up taking me 4 years......throw a marriage and a child in there to explain the time delay. Then, at 31 years old I decided to go back to school and become a nurse.....I will be done in 3 years time, making me 35 by the time I become an actual professional.....so in conclusion.....GO FOR IT!!!!! Who cares how old you are? You'll realize as you get older how young you really were at 25 smile Do it now before kids, marriage, and other life changes that complicate your plan to have the career of your dreams. Good luck!

    annalem,
    I started college at 22. I was aware that I was about 4 years older than most of my classmates but it didn't matter. We all became friends and had a great time learning together. Getting your degree is the best thing you could ever do!!!
    Good luck,
    Lisa

    If going to college will help you accomplish your goals, take your age out of the equation and go for it.
