Taking required prereqs for MFE

I'm going to be graduating with a BBA degree in August and although I've completed various Finance courses that are grounded in math, I haven't taken any pure math courses since first year. I've been researching MFE's over the past few weeks, as I'm interested in potentially having a more quant role. They all have prereq requirements in calculus, linear algebra, stats, etc.
I'm wondering if it's reasonable for me to complete these courses once I've graduated.
Or is it already too late for me?
I've always been a more quant focused person and I made a bad call doing a BBA instead of going into a Math program, and the MFE is a way for me to mend this.
