Is 25 too late to go back to school?

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.

Keeping this in consideration, what age is too late to go back to school?

With the school year drawing near, Dr. Angela Cati says it's never too late to go back to school - even for people over 50. The average age of a college student in the United States is between 18 and 25 years old but a small percentage of college students are over the age of 50.

Likewise, can I go back to school at 24? You'll be fine. A lot of people go back to school at your age and older. One of my best friends went back as a freshman at 24 and fits in just fine. As long as you don't mind hanging out with people a few years younger than you, you can pretty much have a regular college life.

Besides, is it too late to go back to college at 26?

Bottom-line, at the age of 26, anyone can get to college and become very successful so long as they have a clear goal to achieve. Of course not, it's never to late to go back to college.

Can I still go to college at 25?

Starting college at 25 is a very different experience than enrolling immediately after high school graduation. Many adult students find that experience – both personal and professional – is a real asset when returning to college.
