Hi Marisol,

The US Department of Labor publishes a chartbook which addresses the issue of quitting to attend school on a state by state basis. You can read it for yourself pages 30 - 33 under Nonmonetary eligibility.

You'll notice that is says New York does not have a specific provision for disqualifying to leave work to attend school. That's because they disqualify for quitting to attend school because it is considered a quit for personal and non-compelling reasons.

You can also read for yourself how New York ajudicates issues involving voluntarily quitting a job to attend school on this page under 1715.
