I think you have to actively be a student at the time ... so if you intend to try doing it should probably start taking classes now. I think you have to be a certain number of credit hours also. But mainly I would call the department of Labor and ask them.

I did it before but it was so long ago I cant remember anymore. I thought it went till you were done with school, but it doesn't, it is a long time though, but the amount you receive weekly is lowered or something like that.

Its called a 599 training Program.

A: Section 599 of the UI Law makes it possible for claimants to receive benefits while attending a career-oriented training course or program that the Department of Labor has approved without being required to be available for or to look for work . Approval is based on the type of training, training duration, existing labor market conditions and other related factors.

Attendance in a program of training can be approved if your employment opportunities are substantially impaired or the training will either upgrade your existing work skills or train you for an occupation likely to lead to more regular long-term employment. The training must be at least 12 hours per week in a structured classroom setting; must relate to an occupation for which there are, or expect to be, reasonable employment opportunities in the state; is offered by a recognized agency; and will require no more than 24 months to complete. You must also have the required qualifications and aptitudes to complete the training successfully

You can find more info here New York State Department of Labor - Training/599 Program

This is for "career training" if you are talking about getting an extension and going to community college/ a 4 year school / or graduate school you are out of luck, you are not considered "ready willing and able to work".

Hope this helps.

PLEASE do not be suckered into these lies!
The NCESC is not being forward with their information.
The so called "computer update" is a STALLING tactic.
It is being used by many states for the tier 2 and tier 3 extensions.
States were told to do this by the federal government in hopes of not paying benefits to all claimants eligible, by waiting out the December 31 deadline.
The computer system is just as old as it was in July and December 2008, when the federal government approved the first wave of extensions.

CALL THE NCESC EXTENSION hotline in Raleigh, NC (1-866-795-8877) and demand answers to why the money has not been released.
The only way to move this along is if everyone will begin complaining to Raleigh!
DO IT TODAY, if you want to see your tier 3 benefits!!!!
NO JOKE, THIS IS FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
