I have friends who went back for science related fields after getting degrees in social sciences or humanities. One of them had to get a whole new BS. He did as much as he could at a community college, then switched. Not sure now but then and when I was in school it didn't matter if you had a degree already or not - you were still eligible for loans.
Oh yes, you can always get a loan, it's just the type of loan . After getting my BM, I went to culinary school. Because I already had a bachelors, I was only eligible for annoyingly high rate private loans.
