This quantitative research explored the impact of an occupation-based transition to college program for young adults with autism (n = 13). It consisted of seven 45-minute sessions held once per week. Eight out of 13 participants demonstrated improved confidence as a future college student. Participants showed similarities in making the decision to apply to and attend college. Practitioners are encouraged to research the impact of programming to support individuals during the transition process.
