    It's definitely allowed. If you get in, they will gladly take your money. I'd recommend getting in touch with a mental health professional to treat that anxiety first, before starting any degree programs, though.

    You need to do some research on it and get more information before start anything.

    Get checked before attending. The earlier, the better, as they may recommend starting medications (which may take a few tries to be successful), or some follow-up appointments. I got lucky and my current medication was the first one I tried, but I had a friend that had to try two before they stumbled across the right one.

    Best decision I ever made was being checked right before college for my anxiety/depression. I wouldn't change a thing and I recommend it to anyone who is debating it.
