Autism in College

Spectrum teens graduating from high school have more educational options than ever before. We can help by assessing students’ college readiness, and finding the best-fit programs and supports. Below you will find an extensive list of “autism-friendly colleges,” including:

  • Spectrum support programs in 4-year colleges
  • Colleges designed exclusively for students with learning differences or special needs (including autism)
  • Support programs for students with learning differences that may not be specifically for students on the spectrum, but are considered autism-friendly
  • A small sample of non-degree programs for students with intellectual/developmental disabilities – there are many more listed at Think College.

To see additional notes for a program (or a link to its web page), click on the green “+” sign on the left. Click on the “Show entries” drop-down menu at the upper left of the table to see more entries on the page at one time. Contact us if you know of any programs to add to the list.

There are additional resources not listed in this table, such as independent organizations providing mentoring, coaching, or executive functioning support (e.g., organization, planning, time management). Contact us to learn more about these resources. You may also enjoy our articles on topics such as seeking accommodations in college.
