Keys to Academic Success for ADHD College Students

Learning how to get organized, study hard, and stay ahead academically is as essential as reading Shakespeare for ADHD college students.

Balance Your Classes

Consider your class schedule as a whole. If you have trouble paying attention in large lecture classes, balance them out with smaller classes with more discussions. Find out how each class will be graded – is it based on test scores, essays, group projects? Try to pick those that play to your strengths. If you have trouble with reading, math, or languages, don't take them all in the same semester.
