In brief: Sure, with supports
Colleges and universities require documention of an adhd or learning disability diagnosis by neuropsychological testing done within 3 years of admittance.
The student has to apply for academic support for the specific impairments his/her adhd causes. Schools that receive federal funds are legally required to provide accomodations. Private schools often do, but are not obligated.
