Google Chromebook Insurance

AR is selling chromebook insurance for $20/year with no deductible. We encourage purchasing insurance, as uninsured repairs are expensive and the responsibility of the student. We also recommend keeping the chromebook in a protective case.


CR Parking Permits-
Parking Permits can be purchased online at You will login using your CR email address and password and pay via credit card, allowing you to print a temporary parking permit to use until the official permit is mailed to you. If you don’t have a debit or credit card, you can pay for with cash in CR’s Business Office. Day passes are available for $2 from one of the parking permit dispensers around campus.
