    Answered . Under Minnesota law, child support terminates at the age of 18 or graduation from high school, whichever occurs later UNLESS the child is disabled and incapable of self support or the parents agreed as part of a court order to a longer child support term.

    In short, without an agreement, there is no obligation of support for college.
