To be eligible for benefits while attending academic schooling, you must be available for fulltime work to receive benefits. To be considered available for fulltime work while in school, you must be taking less than 10 credit hours, be registered for work as required, and be willing to immediately accept suitable fulltime work in the customary hours of your occupation. However, you may be eligible for benefits if you recently attended school fulltime while working fulltime, and if you are no longer working as a result of a qualifying layoff.
To be eligible for benefits while attending vocational training, you must be available for fulltime work. The availability requirements may potentially be waived for vocational training depending on your work history, whether you voluntarily quit skilled employment to attend the training, and whether you are attending the training fulltime or parttime.
