NASA's space program does indeed accept civilians for astronaut training as well as military pilots and personnel. According to their website, they accept candidates who have a four-year degree from an accredited school in either math, biological science, engineering, or physical science.
In addition to a degree, you'll also need at least three years of work experience in the sciences related to your major. The program prefers candidates with advanced degrees and will let a Master's or Ph.D stand as a substitute for work experience. They also encourage teachers to apply, and will consider teaching experience as equivalent to work experience in a "related" field.
