Claiming Unemployment Benefits

Student employees are not eligible to receive unemployment benefits after leaving employment at WSU. According to Minnesota Statutes (Section 268.035), in regard to unemployment, “Non-covered employment” includes “employment for a school, college, or university by a student who is enrolled and is regularly attending classes at the school, college or university.” If you wish to actually review the statute, more information about Chapters 268-269 is available at The Office of the Revisor of Statutes.
