How to get temporary guardianships in Arizona
The Associated Press article ASU students and alumni who are in temporary guardiansary relationships will have to complete an annual online application process.
If approved, students who have lived with their parents for a year or more will be eligible to apply.
The process is separate from any court case that could take place in their local courts.
Students must also submit a copy of their driver’s license or state ID card.
Students who apply under their parents’ names will be allowed to attend a school.
Students in temporary guardian relationships must also complete a letter from their parent, attorney, and/or guardian stating that they understand the requirements of their guardianship, and that the guardianship is permanent.
The letter must also include information about the student’s parents, attorney and/ or guardian, and the student will be able to apply to become a permanent guardian.
Students are expected to pay for their parents temporary guardians’ services and their own medical expenses, and they can also be charged for any other costs associated with their guardianships.
Students also must register with the ASU Student Financial Aid office in the last three years for the year they were in a guardianship relationship.
The new system will be implemented at the start of next school year, with students able to continue to apply through the new system until December 31, 2019.
Students can now enroll in a Bachelor of Science degree program that is accredited by the American Council on Education.
The university announced plans for a second phase of the program in spring 2018.
Students currently in guardianship relationships will be given the option of enrolling in the Master of Arts in Education program, which will be the same as a bachelor’s degree.
This new program will allow students to complete their degree while in a temporary guardians-only relationship.
