This research is related to the theme of inclusive education. Starting from the context of inclusive education of access and permanence to higher education, we are guided by questions such as: what are the published studies on students with ASD in higher education in Brazil? What they say? Based on these questions, the research aims to analyze what national published studies say about students with ASD enrolled in higher education. In order to achieve the proposed general objective, we use the following specific objectives: to identify the existence of studies on the theme; analyze the characteristics of the studies found; and envision the process of inclusion of students with ASD in higher education, based on the analysis of the studies found. As a data collection procedure, we opted for Systematic Review, aiming to present a synthesis about the knowledge of studies on the subject. Seven studies were found, including 03 Master's Dissertations and 04 Scientific Articles. As a data analysis procedure, Content Analysis was adopted. The data collected showed that studies on the inclusion of people with ASD in higher education in Brazil are few and date from 2017. The findings presented the diagnosis of autism, and not the expression Autism Spectrum Disorder as it has been used. and recommended by international classification documents. The regions of the country with the greatest interest in the theme are the south and southeast regions. The lack of funding for studies is a limiting factor to the promotion of new academic studies on this subject, as well as the fragility of the data released by the agencies that should make a precise survey about the prevalence of people, target audience of inclusive education.
