When I look at the online training in this field, it's clear to me that I don't have the background to pursue it and that a lot more preliminary coursework would be required. And yet, I would love to make that career change. I'm just physically not able to do what I've done all my life, which has a big athleticism piece.

Can someone speak to community colleges that offer this preliminary training, and perhaps the security training as well. I can't do it on my own; it's too confusing. I'm looking at PIMA in Tucson or CNMCC in Albuquerque. Both of these schools have the advantage of being affordable, as well ($500-$600/semester).

Learning programming and white hat hacker skills in jr. college: possible?

Are you looking for someone to speak to college on behalf of you? Or are you just asking if you can talk to a college about their program?

These programs are somewhat new, but definitely becoming more and more common. Albeit my experience is based on my location which is where just about every intelligence agency is headquartered.

You can always download kali Linux and just play around with it. It has a number of security tools that are used by security engineers and penetration testers.
