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, “Noncovered 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.
