I will be losing my job in a few weeks and wondered if their are programs through unemployment to go back to school? I don't mean for unemployment to pay for school, I can pay for it after I graduate through student loans. I just wondered if I can draw my unemployment while I am going to school? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes there are programs, actually if you have worked at your current job long enough the government will pay you to go back to school, you draw your unempployment while going to school and they also pay for the schcol. NOt a bad deal, they should be able to tell you details at the local unemployment office. Good luck.

Also look into scholarships. A lot never are even applied for so I would try to find them too. Good luck.

Thanks so much for the input! I am in my mid 30's and its scary losing my job, since I have never been unemployed and have worked since I was 16! I figured if I was going to be getting unemployment I might as well further my education and better myself and my family. Thanks again!

If you can get help paying for it, go for it. You've paid in taxes tall these years, so its your money paying for it anyway. I wish you the best & hope you find you career after college instead of another job.

Thank you Mandy. I have never gotten any type of assistance in anyway but at this point in life I have handed out my tax money to all these other people.....now is my time! Thanks again for your input. Hoping to make myself much happier and financially stable in the future.

Good luck with all the stuff they said. You can't attend school and draw a unemployment check.

Good luck, FYI...that's why they call it a safety net. Thanks again Mandy for all the good work you do on these threads.

One question they ask when you are filling out unemployment is are you attending school. This disqualify's you from obtaining unemployment. Maybe you should do some research or better yet have them change this.

Ya know I just asked this because I know several people who worked with my husband years ago that DID get unemployment and went to school after being let go from work. I did not know the stipulations and that is why I asked.....not for people to be rude. Maybe I can't, but I am sure going to try. I guess its my ignorance for asking in a place with so many people who know everything!!

It's possible in some cases to draw unemployment and attend school, but you have to qualify for the program, if they are still doing it. I was going to do the same thing, but I got another job instead. Good luck!

Thanks for that. I know what its like to go through hard times & how hard it is to ask or accept little help. I'm all for taxes going to help someone better themselves especially when they have worked hard their whole life. I'd go back to school myself if I only knew what I wanted to do.
