The College Mega Pack contains all of the mods you will need to play Young Adults on your regular residential lots in your regular, not University, neighborhood.
 
Sims 2 University required. Apartment Life compatible.
 
Mods:
 
No Memory Uneducated
No Want Satisfy Uneducated
College Interactions On Any Lot (9-11-2014: Updated)
Teen To Young Adult No College EP8 (11-25-08: NEW)
YA Birthday Cake (10-26-08: NEW)
 
In Game Mods:
 
Semester Tester - Shift+Click your Sim, click on Spawn… and then choose Semester Tester
 
**In order for the above to work, you need to use Shift+Ctrl+C to open the cheat window and then type 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true' without the quotes. Then press Enter. When you're done spawning the Semester Tester, you can open the cheat window again and type 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled false' to turn the testing cheat off.**
 
With Notepad, you can add 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true' to your userStartup file found in the Config folder at the following location:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\**Username**\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Config
 
The above method is only for those people who know what they're doing. Not for the faint of the heart or new Sims 2 players.
 
The Semester Tester helps advance your Young Adult's college clock by running down to 0 hours and enabling them to go to class and finals on their own like they were living at the dorm.
 
Insimenator 2.9x - Go into Buy Mode, select Electronics/Misc and buy the adjuster looking like a stack of schoolbooks
 
Insimenator 2.9x (Stack of Books) has grade, semester, finals and all sorts of class related options.

12-20-08:

**UNSUPPORTED - Insimenator 2.x is now unsupported. Use at your own risk. **
 
If you don’t have Insimenator 2.9x, visit and download from here. Read the documentation and follow the instructions to install Insimenator 2.9x.
 
Optional:
 
Twojeff’s College Adjuster - available at Simbology.
 
Ancient Highway's College Mods - College Isn't Free series (all of the College Series unless Ancient Highway indicates otherwise)
 
Ancient Highway's No Aging of YA will not conflict with the new version of both TeenToYANoCollege EP8 and YABirthdayCake now that he checked for compatibility. The mod is also located at his site in Game Mods.

Chaavik's Better Cafeteria Duty Wages - University
 
 
What’s New:
 
Teen To Young Adult No College EP8 was a new replacement mod for the older mod, Teen To Young Adult No College EP5 (Seasons), with both residential and apartment lots in mind to enable teens to grow up into Young Adults and remain at home with their families and go to college at the same time.
 
YA Birthday Cake has a new option to enable teens to Age to Young Adult on top of two existing options: Age to Adult and Take Finals Now. The mod also gives a “Went to College” memory to teens growing up into Young Adults as well as a “Grew Up Well” memory.
 
 
What’s Old:
 
No Memory Uneducated is a mod to prevent Sims from getting the negative “Never Went To College” memories when they age to adults without going to college as well as the uneducated memories. Not sure what the wording is for that memory. But nevertheless, Sims won’t get negative memories from not going to college.
 
No Want Satisfy Uneducated is a mod to prevent Sims from fulfilling their “Be Uneducated” fears of not going to college and grow up into adults. This also keeps Sims from going into crying and depression fits.
 
College Interactions On Any Lot is an existing mod to enable Young Adults to perform their college tasks: write term papers on their computers, write their class assignments and do college research from their bookcases at their homes or anywhere else.
 
 
 
Not Compatible With:
 
Squinge’s No Autonomous Research & Assignment mod conflicts with College Interactions On Any Lot and will prevent Young Adults from performing their college tasks at their homes or anywhere else.
 
Pescado’s College Rampage on Macrotastics will not work on these lots if Young Adults remain at their homes.
 
TJ's Stinky Dormie Fix will conflict with the CollegeInteractionsOnAnyLot. Remove the Stinky Dormie Fix mod if you want to use the CollegeInteractionsOnAnyLot mod for the college options to appear on your YAs at their home lots.
 
 
 
How To Install:
 
For XP users, install all of the mods into the Downloads folder or the subfolder in the following location:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\********\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads
 
Or:
 
C:\Documents and Settings\********\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads\Squinge_College_Mods
 
******* is the name of your account you use to play Sims 2 on.
 
 
For Vista users, install all of the mods into the Downloads folder or the subfolder in the following location:
 
C:\Users\**username**\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads
 
Or:
 
C:\Users\**username**\Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads\Squinge_College_Mods
 
 
How To Play:
 
Basically, what you do to age teens to Young Adults is to go into Buy Mode and buy the cake. Place it on any counter or table. Direct your teen to the cake and select Age To Young Adult. The teen will then age into a Young Adult and get a new UI panel showing the Freshman first semester. The Sim’s clock does not start. You need to use the Semester Tester to Start Class. Then the Young Adult’s clock will run down from 72 hours to 0 hours as if he/she is on the dorm lot. Play your Young Adult through college and when you’re ready to age your Sim after graduating from college, buy the cake again and use the Age To Adult option.
 
When you do return to your Young Adult's home lot, you will find that you have to Start Class again on the Semester Tester to continue counting down your Young Adult's college clock.

ALL credit goes to Mr Squinge for updating a couple of mods and testers for testing all of the mods thoroughly for Apartment Life.

Just a note on the College Isn't Free project.

Tuition, Room and Board works fine with the Mega College Pack after some last minute changes.  YAs will be charged tuition whether they attend college classes or not.

Teen Jobs for YA appears to have mixed results at the moment.  Chaavik reported no problems using it, but in testing TRB, my sim lost her job aging to YA and was unable to get another.  Be looking for a new version of this that is consistent Tongue

Thanks, Ancient, for your feedback! I appreciate the information Tongue  Will update the first post to reflect one of the mods working with the Mega College Pack.

EDIT:

The only reason I had no issue with Teen Jobs For YA was because I don't have the tuition mod. My YA was able to retain her teen job when she grew up into a YA on a home lot.

I can attribute my alleged problem with Teens Jobs for YA to user error lol.  It looks like all of the College Isn't Free works well with Mega College.

Never heard of the mod before and looked there. Run Hack Conflict Detection Utility to find out if it conflicts with any of the mod included with the Mega College Pack. If you don't know where to get HCDU, check FAQ for more information.
