Hi, I am a old memeber started up again. I have done 20 units now at CCollege and am seriously thinking of of BA, not just the AA. I have read of scholarships for my age group. Hmm, I am in mid 40's with grown kids too, getting an AA seemed like a big step, but everyone says I should focus on transfer eventually. How did any of you get scholarships? Anyone out there just starting in Psychology too? I'd luv some feedback. Thanks...

Hi AMitchell.

I'm an older member as well. Finding scholarships is time consuming but can be done. I have received a few directly from my school, they know that I am interested in finding whatever I can.

If you can find a school that will work with you there are lots of options. In my opion I would say go for the BA.

I oroginally started at Vermont College Union Instutute interested in their Art therapy program but did not focus on that. I have several friends who did focus on psychology.

Also don't forget about CLEPS

I brought in 32 credits from CC. Received 21 for life experience another 15 from CLEPS ( all of which I did in the last few months. The only thing left was to put in the three semesters at Vermont College.

I was also able to receive credit for my life experience. I obtained 21 credits that way.

Good luck and have fun.
