Orientation

Welcome to Bowdoin. We are so excited to welcome you Class of 2024 and incoming transfer students! We will continue updating this page as the College releases information concerning the fall. 

Please know that Bowdoin College, along with many other colleges and universities across the country, is currently navigating COVID-19. We ask for your patience as it will take us longer than usual to respond to your emails.

To find more information and answers to commonly asked questions, please look at Bowdoin's Frequently Asked Questions Page.
