Polaris Course Numbers

Beginning with the Fall 2013 semester, all courses have 4-digit numbers. Below is an Excel file that lists 4-digit course numbers (and the previously-used 3-digit equivalents). The file may currently be accessed only by Bowdoin faculty and staff.  

Note: Courses are repeated in the list as many times as they are cross-listed. Unless sorted differently, all courses are in order by 4-digit number. The course number for the originating subject area is in bold. Pink highlighting indicates a course number that has been re-used. Blue highlighting indicates a new or revised course that has not yet been through the approval process.
