Compared to the general college population, students with attention deficit disorder are less academically prepared with the skills to maintain college course requirements. This inadequacy is due to the change in academic structure, time management, and the skills required for higher education. The goal of this study is to expand on previous research regarding college students with ADD and to understand how the symptoms of ADD influence college students’ future plans for careers. Providing academic institutions with knowledge of how symptoms of attention deficit disorder affects college students and their future career planning may assist advisors in providing students with services and treatment options to increase retention and career commitment.
