Would a CS Degree Be Good for Someone Over 30?

kenl999 go for it (166 comments)

I just finished my degree (BS in CS) at age 42 so it's definitely do-able. Couple of points:

1. If you're currently employed, see if your employer provides tuition assistance or reimbursement. It will increase the time required, but you will graduate with less debt. It took me 11 years (off & on) but I have zero school debt right now.

2. If you have an option between several different schools, make sure you shop around regarding how much of your existing credits they'll accept.
