Not certain about New York, specifically, but in most states, payment of child support only continues if the "child" in question is, unmarried or under 18, and does not attend any form of formal schooling.

That depends entirely on the state where you live and what the original support order states.

Other states provide for modification of child support orders for children beyond the age of 18 who are enrolled in school for a certain number of hours. You would need to provide your state of residence as well as indicate whether or not the original support order includes a provision for extended support.

Does the non custodial parent who stops working to go to college have to pay child support?

Child support comes first, if there is not already an award in place - contact the District Attorney's of office in the county where you live. If the parent is going to college to be able to have a career with better pay, it may be worth it for you to cooperate as that parent will be able to pay more support once they graduate. If they are going to college with the idea they can avoid paying child support, because they aren't working, they maybe in for a surprise to find out the court has heard it all and will tell them to find a job.
