Title 36 of the Code of Federal Regulations and the National Park Service Recreation Fee Guidelines (NPS-22) state that an educational group requesting a waiver of entrance fees must meet the following requirements:
- The group must provide documentation of official recognition as an educational institution by a federal, state or local government entity responsible for education or accreditation. School letterhead is generally considered sufficient documentation.
- The group must state the purpose of their visit to Prince William Forest Park. The visit must relate directly to the resources of the park; the group must state specifically what they will study in the park and show how studying these park resources is part of their school curriculum. Lesson plans and course descriptions are useful in addressing these items.
