Request Special Polaris Access


Polaris is Bowdoin's Student Information System (SIS). It was implemented in 2013 and replaced several different systems. From the Polaris project website:

"Polaris enables us to engage in new practices that facilitate more effective advising, support academic student planning, and aid faculty and staff in more effective curriculum planning. The processes around admission, course registration, course offerings, and grade submission, among others, have new automated and online components, increasing efficiency as well as efficacy."
