yes you can go to school and collect unemployment. See Link below California is an example of that they have a training program with unemployment and also allow of unemployment while a student under other programs, but you need to check and/or get in touch for more details. Check the corresponding Link with regard to below. Other states may have similar programs, so check out other state's web sites. Please note the use of the word encourage with regard to the labor department encouraging states to modernize their rules. Attending school while on unemployment , unless approved, is a reason to stop your benefits. Measures to encourage states to change some of the rules and what rules have changed so that now can be found in the united States Department of Labor.
