I have a GPA of 1.93 because the dean, denied my appeal to drop the 3 zeroes i got because of turmoil caused by an irregular schedule and bad medication side effects and depression and thus dropping 3 zeroes and also the fact that one class i dropped because the professor failed to disclose that it was passed usually by students who had priorly taken another course, and also, one course had a professor talk behind my back to special ed and complain i was "asking too many questions" and "disrupting class" and the special ed coordinator threatened to get the discipline head, and i got scared and dropped the course, and even shunned special ed. and i failed the only class that remained.

what are some careers for people who have borderline and autism and who don't want to go to college?

I worked in building trades (electrical) earlier in my career. Most trades have room for personality/conduct traits that aren't well suited to what we think of as post-college careers. I've worked with a good number of people that in retrospect were somewhere on the spectrum, or had obvious personality issues, and they were able to be successful and seemed content. These trades can lead to good careers and good retirement if you work at it, and they don't have to be hard physical labor if you work your way up or into a niche in your field. In many cases you don't have to work with people a whole lot (or even at all), and are often not supervised much either.

Trades that require licensure have a decent amount of classroom time involved through an apprenticeship, but it's very specific to the trade, no BS classes.

turns out, my professor marked it as incomplete because I had an assignment missing, but that's because i sent it to the wrong email (he has two, and he told me he rarely checks the other but i mixed up the two), so it should be cleared up soon.

Learn a language, be translator.

Anyway, you should go back and get some more education. That would be the best. Maybe try some sort of religious studies or something.

Acting, if you can do it.

Marketing . Digital marketing or social media marketing, advertising products or knowing how to advertise online, you can work your way up the marketing industry.

Start with sales of your own product via Amazon fulfilment or Facebook marketplace and go into social media marketing and digital marketing. “Sales” means you can be your own employer.

Pretty much any work from home job will hire you, and sales/promotion experience can easily be exaggerated in a resume.

You have neither borderline or autism. I also really didn’t like the way they structured uni and it’s really been tiresome and I’ve gotten a few fails too, but only difference is I have to graduate somehow because I’ve gotten into so much debt. I’m hoping postgrad will be better.

Honestly, I think you should change uni and try again.

Only 11% of the military seem combat. The rest is a giant welfare check.

Military actually has sorta higher standards for Asfab or whatever the hell its called now. My friend is a recruiter basically her nightmare is going through the full enlisting process with a client just to have the army physicians disqualify the applicants for often times behavioral issues in their Highschool portfolio or signs of mental illness. Just saying OP said his reasons for falling behind in GPA and classes was because of personal stuff and medication side effects and issues. So he could easily disqualify from being considered for military.

Anyways I agree with the others as far as a trade: Welding is the sorta obvious one to me that I seen plenty of boys later who became men who just went straight from Highschool to welding. Otherwise construction? Maybe pipeline work? Cable/Internet Guy ?
