    You want to live like the common people? You want to do what the common people do?

    Dude, that it is excellent.

    Trust me, it’s really much easier the second time around… it really will surprise you how much more you know now than you did then… If there’s anything I can do to help, let me know…

    That May Be Enough…

    The real challenge here is whether or not folks will honor any credits that were acrued over 20 years ago.

    So first things first, see what school you can get accepted into, and then start working with them about what their transfer credit problems may be.

    IF you can get back into UCLA, then see if they can do the right thing and honor their own credits.

      This is a big, uninformed guess, but I’m pretty sure colleges honor credits that were earned, 10, 20 or 30+ years ago.

      My mom took the same ceramics class over and over again at a community college for fun a few years ago. Then the administration contacted her saying if she was a student for x number of semesters she needed to take a math class. My mom totally freaked out (as she’s SO un-mathy; she was an art major, hence the zillion ceramics classes) and sent her transcripts to the school to prove she had in fact taken the required math… 30-some years ago and at a different university. The credits were accepted and she continued to fill her house with homemade pots and mugs.

      ANYWAY, Conrad, awesome that you want to go back and finish. Very excellent for sure.

        well, actually, NO!

        In the sixteen years that were my freshman years, that was not true. Colleges can opt to pick and choose what credits they will transfer.

        IF one goes to the same school there is the opportunity to run into the sort of case that occurred with your mother. But if you go to more than one school, then all bets are off…

    This is good news. You are going to be doing something awesome and also writing stories about annoying classmates. ;)

    When I went back to take classes in preparation for grad school, not only was it easier, but my study habits were also a lot better than they had been. You’ll be totally fine if you can get through the administrative hurdles.

    and yeah, awesome.

    aside from the bureaucracy, it’s easier and more fun than you think

    If you want to finish your degree at UCLA I’d be astonished if they didn’t honor their own, antiquated credits. I mean, they’d honor an antiquated B.A., wouldn’t they?

    On the other hand, if you want to transfer, transferring is usually a sticky process (even when twenty years don’t elapse in the meantime).

    Good for you! I often think how much more I’d appreciate college, now that I’ve been out of it (and paying it off) for six years. I hope it works out.

    What a wonderful, positive thing to do! Good luck! If you are readmitted, be sure to consider utilizing their Disability Services Center should you need any accommodation for aggravating brain troubles. You can register without requesting accommodation, and then you’re all set up should you later find that you could use one.
