As more students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder attend college, studies are emerging that reveal problems in psychosocial and academic functioning. Substance use may magnify deficits in self-regulation. Recommendations are made for comprehensive assessment; however, the usual diagnostic categories may not be developmentally relevant. Students who are identified benefit from medication and nonmedication interventions, strategy support, and accommodations.
