I am a 29 years old and am ready to go back to school. My dilemma is that I have not attended school since 2001, am 1 science course away from my B.A. My major was Fashion Design and Merchandising and I have worked in my field for several years and am now ready to change careers. I have made several unsuccessful attempts to pass this physical science course and have now failed it 3 times. I have absolutely no interest in this course and it is not at all related to my field. I want to go back to school for my masters but, I cannot do it without passing this class. I want to know if I can just attempt to just start over with a new undergraduate degree or if I am going to have to keep failing this same physical science course until I eventually pass it.

Yeah its never to late to change your degree. The good news is that since you've had this change of heart BEFORE you got the Bachelors, that you actually are going to qualify for MORE financial aid that way. Go figure =P

You'll probably find that all the general ed courses will mostly transfer over directly. English, Math, History, and you'll definately have enough elective courses covered. At that point its just a matter of contacting your student advisement folks and tell them you wish to change your major over to something else.
