Hi cikalaban I dont think being 26 years old is too old to be a university student, you can take the extended class or enter the Open University (in Indonesian language we called it as Universitas terbuka) there is no limitation of age for us to study in the university. my classmate is as old as my mother but she has the passion to study and to get a university degree. if you are a worker you still can participate in saturday sunday class or the afternoon class, many universities open this kind os program we called is extention class. so do not worry about your age, none is too old to study. in my university they have several kind of class: the regular class is the class dedicated for regular student and they study in the morning most of students who join this class are the highschool fresh graduate, and then we also have the extention class it is for people who graduated from diploma program and want to get a higher degree (S1) the extention class is also dedicated for worker who wants to study while working, the class usually started in the afternoon or at weekend. then we also have a long distance class, it is dedicated for students from other city who want to study in our university, they come to the university 1x/month and the class is held on sunday from 8am to afternoon.

it is NEVER to late to go back to school....i dont know if an actual college will accept you in or not but i can say this i am 24 and i never went to college and i would like to after my kids start going to school. i was worried about doing this i guess because i thought i would be embarressed. i think it is a good thing you are wanting to go back to school and it may make you future a lot brighter with better chances of better jobs :) i hope that you decide to persue this and i wish you good luck :) but dont EVER think you are to old or it is to late :)

Hi cikalaban: What?! Of course you are young. You are just 26, why do you consider yourself old to go to college. You have a whole life to live. Don't waste your potential. If you want to do it you can do it. I actually know people that, for different reasons has postponed their studies and they don't come back to university until they are like 40. And some of them were actually good students. So go on and don't give up. ALVARO
