My fiance was a PhD. Candidate at Stony Brook the past 3 years. While a student she worked for the university teaching and received a pay check. This year she decided academia was not for her, and decided to leave the university with only her masters degree and is no longer employed with the college.


Is she eligible for unemployment?

Seasonal perhaps. Falls under the "lack of work" category.
Many "legal" seasonal workers go on unemployment in the off season and stop benefits when they return to work.

She can try and apply, but it would be a waste of time, The univ would contest her claim. Employers never want to accept a claim. Employers experience rating gets worse and they will have to pay a higher rate of tax

If SB stopped the funding for her project, which would result in her losing her spot in her program, even then I don't think she can claim unemployment. She's really a student, not am employee and her TA duties are more like a fellowship, rather than a job. Her compensation is not having to pay tuition and her pay is more like a stipend.
