The TRAC Project, also known as Trajectories Related to ADHD in College, is a five-year National Institutes of Health research study that will follow students with and without ADHD, from their freshman year in college onward to determine how ADHD impacts college life.

"The findings will help to shed light on the specific needs of college students with ADHD, which will ultimately lead to appropriate interventions for these students. Currently, stimulant medication is the most common treatment for college students with ADHD, but other nonpharamacological interventions may be necessary and beneficial for these students," said Dr. Lisa L. Weyandt, one of the researchers conducting the TRAC project .

"Our study will help to elucidate the specific academic, psychological, and social needs of these students, and in the process will also help us to better understand the trajectories of college students without ADHD."
