My question is I have Direct TV with 4 receivers in my home. 2 of witch are standard boxes not being used. My oldet daughter in college has moved into an Apartment without cable service provided. She cannot afford cable/satellite TV on her own. Is there a way for me to be able to give her one of my boxes that I pay for to use in her apartment. and If so How do I do this? Thank you!

This has been answered previously. You can purchase a dish, and install it yourself on her building. If her building has directv already, you can purchase an additional receiver on yoru account, and use the DTV multiplexing.

Why not use a Slingbox to stream one of the direct TV boxes to her over the internet.
