30 is young to go to college .I know many people who have gone to college i sixties and above.It is never too late to learn any thing. I learnt computer operation at the age of 65. To day i am happy that I did it otherwise i wouldn't be talking to you

YOu are right. 30 is a young age, no need to worry. There are a lot of things to learn and its never too late, certainly not at 30 anyways.

Nooo. It's a perfect time. Now you are more focused and have a better idea of what you really want to do with your life. You are still very young and this is the time of your life. Make the most of it.

yea, i agree. it's never too late to go back. my college (community college) has people that are as old as my parents. one guy in my math class was in his 50s. i'd say go for it!

Why is it too late? You learn stuff every day, so why not go back to college and take classes that will help you in your job, get a promotion, raise, or even a new job? I don't think it is ever too late to stop learning.

I think there is no word "to late" for someone that still want to learn to get knowledge. If you still have time & money to do that I suggest to go back to your college.

Definately not. That is what I am doing, and I feel when you are ready is when you should start. Why go through school, and spend a whole bunch of money when you do not know what you are going to do, or be.

i don't think it's ever too late to go back to college at the age of 30. if you're willing to try to expand your education, to improve your life, and get a decent job that you love then i say go for it. i don't believe age matters for anything. some people still get married when they're 90 something so why can't you go back to college at 30. you learn something everyday and college is just helping you learn more. sure it may be rough at first trying to remember everything you learned in high school but eventually you'll get the hang of it. as long as you don't give up on yourself then you'll be okay. it doesn't matter that you may be the oldest in your class. if you are determined as anyone else to graduate and become a person with a better education then college might not be as big as a deal.

it's not late. Age does not matter if you like to go to college as long as you can manage it then go on. In fact i have a classmate way back my college. She is in her 50's. Her children are all grown up and already finish their studies now her time to finish her college. She continue it and graduate. Its the feeling of fullfillness that she had accomplish something in her life.

For education there is no right or wrong age as whenever you feel like learning one should do.

It is never late to learn. Infact it is appreciable if you are willing to learn something. YOu can also use the resources available to you to learn like the internet, computer, libraries etc. if you feel shy of going to college. And do not worry that your mind will not be able to remember so much information as it would when you were young. You are still young at 30 and can learn a lot.

I think it is still ok to go back to college at age 30. I know a lot of people older than that who are still in college now pursuing the course which they really wanted. Go ahead and study. Just try to be more confident and try to get good grades when your in college so your classmates would look up to you.

I think if you only want to learn ,you can at any time ,under any circumstances,why choose to go back to college at the age of 30.

I don't think it's late to go back to college at age 30,I think it's good, because knowledge's no ends.U study for your own good,update yourself and be competitive in this fast changing world.so just to it,don't hold back.
