Your parent or guardian need to be there when you register in a new school. * An 18-year-old is considered a legal adult in all US states with the exception of Nebraska where the age of majority is 19. Regardless of the age of the student, parents do not decide which public school their child will attend. That being the case whether the 18-year-old could change schools depends upon state laws and the school districts policy.

Is losing custody the same as terminating rights?

Not at all. Terminating parental rights is a court process by which you either voluntarily relinquish your parental rights or there is serious danger posed to your child such that the court does it without your consent. Either way, when parental rights are terminated, the parent has no more rights to the child. Losing custody can be a temporary thing and does not change your parental status.

Any state agency, including a school district can establish requirements that conflict with the state's age of majority law. This is also a factor in states that allow the emancipation of minors.
