Hello, I am 55 years old, was a single parent and returned to school last year. I’ve been a waitress for 36 years. I solely supported my daughter (never got a penny of support). My first step in returning to school was applying for support at the college I wanted to attend. On the application(s), I was honest about my life thus far. I received a scholarship which paid for some of my classes. I received a Pell Grant and also took out a small loan. I work 3 jobs, drive 225 miles (round trip to school, I have a 1999 car and AAA!) 2-3 days/week, take 5 classes/semester and have a 3.75 GPA. I’m finishing my senior year in 2014! I have 7 classes left for an English/Journalism double major degree. You can do it!! Yes, it takes a LOT of work, but it’s so worth it. I’ll help you any way I am able, just ask.

I am starting law school at age 55, will be about age 60 when I graduate and hopefully pass the BAR in my state. I received a small scholarship from my law school but no they did not give me free tuition. I will still owe $120k plus loan fees when I graduate and that’s assuming tuition does not increase in the next few years and that I keep my grades up to hold on to my scholarship. I don’t agree with the advice on here that colleges will give women age 60 and up free tuition for course credit is accurate. You may get a slight discount in tuition at age 60 and up but colleges today are in business to make money and it is doubtful they will give course credit for free. That is coming from an older student who may not even get a job offer or much assistance from the Career Counseling Center when I graduate Law School. That’s how it is for the older student. You take all the risk!
The application form and the essay must be mailed to:
