How much tuition assistance (other then TAP) is available for full time students?

How long, as a full time student, do you get unemployement and sub pay?

I'm going back to college!

good for you! you need to talk to the union. Your college should be completely paid for through government programs.

It's been 13 years since I attended college. I wonder how many entry level classes I'm going to be forced to retake....

Don't quote me, but I don't think you can draw unemployment if you start taking classes. I know when I call in to verify unemployment eligibility, one of the questions they ask is if I started school. I did a quick google search and found this about Unemployment Insurance in WA. http://fortress.wa.gov/esd/portal/unemploymen...
Basically, it says that if you are going to school and studying, then how can you be looking for work, which is a requirement when you are on indefinite layoff.

If you are unemployed, you should be able to qualify for tuition assistance from the government.

I am 3 classes away from finishing my BBA Finance degree. It has taken me 5 years, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If it has been 13 years since college with no degree, you may have to pretty much start over. I believe that my school said credits over 8 years may not transfer.

Don't forget that, if necessary, you can take out student loans. TAP paid for my BA, and now the buyout is paying for my MPA. Chrysler has been very good to me.

Most biological sciences are usually good for 5 years and then have to be retaken. I'm a nursing student so that may apply just to the medical field.

Do you mean that you can collect sub pay and still use your TAP while on lay-off? Can you also still collect the unemployment part of it as well?
know nothing

I am living proof, you can use TAP while drawing sub and/or unemployment benefits. I went to Ivy Tech for 2 semesters during the last long layoff(15 months)I didn't miss any money while doing so. This is a nice benefit for those who desire.

You can't collect unemployment while your going to school. I suppose if your state unemployment ran out, then you could get the sub pay and start school.

Thanks I know what a BA and a BS are, but never heard the BBA term. Makes sense since there is an MBA.

Yes, I think so. But the TAP enhances while on layoff. It increases considerably. While you are on layoff, you can count on getting a lot of help for tuition. It really is a wonderful opprotunity.

When I first returned to school, a lot of my coworkers use to crack jokes when I studied during break. Then they sold the plant and I had an exit plan, and many others did not. It is fantastic that you guys are taking advantage of this! I wish more people would. You could use the money to get a comercial drivers license if you wanted, it doesn't even have to be a college or university. Its free money.

In the Kokomo area, we haven't been required to look for work while on indefinite layoff and can go to school without disrupting unemployment benefits, thats what I'll be doing this time around.

I've been on layoff quite a bit and I've went to school the whole time. I live in Michigan. Years ago, unemployment made you go to classes and to actively look for work but they don't enforce it anymore.
been there done that

Boils down to an agreement between the state and union. Like the peoson from Kokomo said, people in Indiana don't have to look for work, based on this agreement.
