I am going back to school part time this Summer and full time this Fall. Just need to know if I still have to apply for the minimum 2 jobs per week while in school. Also, I am almost at my initial 26 weeks-runs out end of this month. How do I file for an extension? I do have a tentative offer of a job. It's a government job-just need to pass the med and background checks, which aren't a problem. But I haven't had a confirmation yet and don't know how long it'll be before they finish all their checking. So, in case my benefits run out before it's finalized, I'd just like to know how to get an extension...thanks!

If you are registered or attending school at the time you apply for unemployment benefits, answer "Yes" to the application question, "Are you attending school now?"

If you register for school after you applied for unemployment benefits, the next time you request your weekly benefits answer "No" to the question, "Were you able, available and actively seeking full time work?"

You will be provided a questionnaire or talk to a representative so you can inform the unemployment office about your schooling. If it is determined to be full-time reemployment assistance training, you will be informed that you do not have to seek work. Each week when you request benefits, you will be asked, “Did you make satisfactory progress in training?” instead of the questions about seeking work and being available for work.
