I think I have ADHD but was never followed by one dr when i was young so there is no history on me. Is there another way to test for adult adhd?

In brief: ADHD can be assessed

Using psychological tests or a simple inventory ( connor's inventory) or by a clinical interview with a psychologist.
If you want special assistance in a college program you need psyche testing. Otherwise you can do a less formal evaluation. With a psychologist's recommendation a physician could put you on a trial of medication.
