There should be no child support paid for the duration the child is away at school so long as the ex has contributed to the child's residence and schooling costs.

Child support is for when the child is at home. If the ex is contributing to residence, meal plan, educational expenses, to expect them to pay c/s while the child is away is double dipping. C/S is for residence, food etc. When the child returns home for the summer, c/s resumes.

If the ex is not contributing to the kids education costs (which they should be), then c/s would continue as those funds would need to be directed to the kid to help cover the costs that the ex should've been paying.
