Please don't let your age discourage you. Higher education is always open to anyone at any age. Besides 35 is still very young.

The Associate Degree admission requirements are very flexible. You basically need a high school (Grade 12) to enter, and in most cases, the college will admit students of more than age 21 without high school. No GRE is required because this is not a graduate level program.

The Associate Degree is an entry level 2-year post-secondary program into any field. After the 2-years, one can enter a university for an additional 2-year of studies to complete a 4-year degree program.

As you already know that IELTS is the basic requirement and you feel confident of passing it - that is a very good sign. You will need at least 650 score.
