    If you are 18 years old you are legally emancipated in all 50 states.

    Are you asking for college financial aid reasons? Because that's entirely different.

    At 18, you're already emancipated, and you're not a minor. If you're moving to Colorado for school, you're not going to be eligible for in-state tuition until next year.

    That has nothing to do with being an emancipated minor - which you are not - and everything to do with Federal financial aid guidelines.

    If you want to qualify for more aid, delay matriculation until you're considered independent from your parents, and work in the meantime. There's no law requiring you to go to college immediately after high school.
