My husband and I are residents of New York State. His daughter, my stepdaughter attended a State University last year. She only wound up taking half of the classes that she was supposed to take and last semester she didn't pass any of them. We funded her college last semester. This semester we wanted her to live home and go to a local community college. However she refuses and insists that she is going back to the State University paying for same herself. I know that in New York State the parents must sign the financial aid applications until the student is 24 years of age. If we allow her to go to this university (looks like we have no choice actually) what are we responsible for? Are we responsible for the costs that she doesn't pay in connection with tuition, residence at college,etc. Are we responsible for any personal injury or property damages she may cause? Are we responsible for medical bills? Please answer as we are very confused as well as concerned.
