College represents an opportunity to move toward independence while also participating in a supportive learning environment. Young adults with ASD are attending college in increasing numbers, but the research concerning their experiences is mixed. Most individuals report academic success, which may be reflective of a sampling bias. However, many of these individuals still report difficulties with the social aspects of academics (i.e. group work). They also report difficulties following lectures, managing their time, and participating in the social aspects of college. Choosing a college is particularly important for this group, as colleges vary in the types of support offered to students with ASD.
