Abstract: This research investigates executive functioning challenges faced by students in college. This research responds to a gap in the literature within college student development theories about the development of college students with learning differences, specifically executive function (EF) challenges. Five students with EF challenges were involved in a series of interviews throughout and concluding their first semester at a four-year, public institution. The transcripts were coded and analyzed to identify themes to describe their development through college student development vectors using Chickering and Reisser’s (1993) theory as well as their perceptions of college for students with EF challenges.
