Currently I work as a front desk manager at a seasonal hotel. In the next few weeks, we will be closing until early April and I will have to file for unemployment benefits for the first time.
At the same time, I have recently applied for a Masters program, and I'm curious how that might affect my eligibility. It's a distance program that meets roughly one weekend a month (Fri, Sat & Sun). My understanding is that you cannot file for unemployment while in school because it will take away from your availability to work. But since this is such amount of class time, I wonder if I will still be able to receive benefits.
Does anyone have any experience with this? (I'm from Maryland if that helps)
Thank you so much for you help!
