Unlike traditional car rental services, the minimum age allowed to use the car sharing program is 18.

Dropback from CHE 105 to CHE 109

The first CHE 105 exam is on Thursday, September 14.  Grades will be available to students sometime over the weekend.  Due to anticipated demand and the limited number of seats available, we will have students get in a virtual line via a web-based form.  Signing up does NOT guarantee them a seat but helps ensure that all students have access to get in line for a seat.  In-person or email requests will not be accepted.  An announcement with these details will be posted for students on Canvas this week.
