Emancipation for Tuition Purposes
Who uses this form? Students under the age of 23 who are attempting to petition for in-state tuition using their own information and must prove emancipation from their parents. This form must be attached to the Petition for In-State Tuition in order to be considered for emancipation.
According to the tuition law, emancipation occurs at the age of 22 years, or upon marriage, or if a) the parents or legal guardians submit an affidavit surrendering any claim or right to the care, custody, and earnings of the minor, as well as the duty to support the minor, together with the student's proof that the student can independently meet all living expenses, including the cost of education; and b) failure of parents or legal guardians to provide financial support together with the student's proof that the student can independently meet all living expenses, including the cost of education.
The 12-month waiting period for establishing domicile begins only after the date of emancipation has been established by appropriate documentation.
