In July 2008, Amy Roloff gave a speech in Metropolis. Towards the end of the speech Zach, Jeremy, Molly and Jacob joined her on the stage and they answered questions from a the audience.
This is a 16 minute video taken of her speech. The quality is not the greatest, but it gives some insight about what a Roloff speaking engagement is like.
At the 13 minute mark of the video, Zach and Jeremy are asked about their plans for college. Zach and Jeremy both say they plan on going to college, but are unsure about where or exactly what they would like to take. During season 3 of the show, Zach was heard whispering to Molly that Jeremy did not plan on going to college, so Jeremy's answer that he is planning on going to college might surprise some. I don't doubt Jeremy's intention, but sitting on a stage beside his mother in front of hundreds of people is not the most ideal place to inform everyone that he doesn't want to go to college, even if that is what he was thinking.
Since this speech, Jeremy has re-iterated that he's looking forward to college after high school.
While I'm discussing college, I'll take this moment to clear up some more confusion. We receive hundreds of inquiries about what college Zach and Jeremy Roloff attend. They are currently seniors in High School. Many people are confused because most kids born in May (10th) of 1990 graduated from High School in June of 2008. The reason why Zach and Jeremy are a year older than most of their classmates is due to the fact that they did pre-school twice and started a year later than most kids. You might recall during the recent camping trip episode aired in October 2008, it was Zach and Jeremy's friend, Jacob Mueller's 17th birthday. Jeremy and Zach are 18. They are a year older than most high school seniors.

This the portion about college.
Question for Zach and Jeremy: College plans? What they are wanting to do?
Zach: "I want to be a teacher. My goal would be to be a teacher, probably history and also be a coach in soccer. Maybe make coaching a career. I kind of would like to be a cameraman. Definitely go to college though."
Jeremy: "I know I want to go to college but I just don't know where. I haven't really picked something yet. Maybe go into business in something that I could do with being a pilot or captain or something. Maybe open a body restoration shop."
EDIT : Update August 2009, It sounds like Jeremy and Zach will be attending Portland Community College. You can read further details in this item here:
