you need to show that you are applying for work and ready and willing to work to maintain those benefits - even if it is part time work. your benefits would be decreased but you would be able to collect. the law requires one who is on unemployment make a concerted effort to apply and also is willng and able to work. one cannot stop looking or not be free to work simply because they want to go back to school full time.
so you need to get some applications in for some part time work and bring copies of those with you.
