You must be able to show that you were able and available to work... Said that, Many people have gone to college full time and worked... I don't see a reason why you can't receive unemployment and go to college... If you run into a problem , contact a qualified attorney...

I agree with Mr. Bond. I don't think you should have an issue just because you are attending college. As long as you can show that you are able and available for work and that you are actively seeking employment, then you should be fine.
