No, you cannot.

Indiana Code (IC 31-16-6-6) sets the age of emancipation at 21 years of age.

In Indiana, child support is automatically terminated at age 21, unless the child has been determined to be legally incapacitated or an order for educational support beyond high school is established prior to the child turning 21.
