A legitimate educational need can be defined as off-campus requirements for educational programs that conflict with a student’s class schedule to the degree that the student is not able to take the UMBC Shuttle to the Satellite Lot in order to retrieve his/her vehicle. Educational Programs that might warrant an exception are Scholarship/Service Programs (ex. Sondheim). You may also request an exception if you are taking a course off-campus.
