Can I still try for a 2nd Degree if I have previously attempted for 180+ hours?

I am looking into going back to school to receive a 2nd degree in Business. I graduated a few years ago with a BA in Psychology. During that time and prior to, in high school, I took classes for enjoyment as well as towards my degree. I exceeded the 180 hours limit for SAP. Does the SAP policy only for Financial aid? Can I still get a 2nd degree, as long as I pay for it myself?

Also, are dropped courses (Ws) considered attempted courses when calculating an Attempted GPA?

Just a few questions....

Thanks for the help!

    Each college/university sets its own policy about admission for second bachelors degrees. Contact the place(s) you are interested in, and ask.

    What have you been doing since you graduated? An MBA might be more focused and meaningful for you. Look into that as well. The folks in the MBA forum will have good ideas for you.
