I've been penalized. In my case, I got called back to work full time and collected one more week than I should have. I ended up having to pay that money back and I was penalized for 5 weeks, meaning the next time I filed a claim I had to wait 6 weeks (instead of 1) to start collecting benefits.

i got a phone interview with the unemployment department tomorrow because i started school and put it on my claim form that began attending school.
i figured i could lie about it but i rather play it safe and avoid any problems in the future if they find out. besides i only go 2 days a week and am still available for full time work so i should be good.
You're good as long as you tell them you are able to accept full time work, even if it means having to withdraw from a class to take the job.
