What else are the Maya limits as a student?

If one buys a student Maya license, apart from not using it for commercial purposes, what are the other limitations of this license?

You don't have to buy it. It's free from students.autodesk.com. You can't do commercial work on it, and you can't load it on an institutional machine (i.e. in a school's computer lab). Those are the only major restrictions.

I assume you can. You're not allowed to use files created in the student version for "institutional purposes" but I'm reasonably certain homework doesn't count.

If it's illegal to take files back and forth between student and school versions of the program, literally every animation student I know has broken the law.

Only thing you can't do is use it for commercial purposes. Working on an assignment at home and at school is fine as far as I understand. Schools still have to pay for licenses, but students don't.
The license is good for 3 years now.

When you open a file that's been saved using the student license a window pops up and says,
"The file being opened was created by a Student Version of Maya. Use of this data by an educational institution or for commercial purposes is a violation of your Maya License Agreement. This message will appear whenever this file is opened."

But that's it. The file still opens and works as it should.
