Signing up for and using the CLEAR app:

You will need to download the app CLEAR (developed by Alclear LLC) onto your smartphone.  Searching for “CLEAR health pass” will locate it quickly. The app will walk you through many steps to create an account: this can be a frustrating and tiresome process.  When asked for organization code, provide “bowdoin”.  You will be asked for your mobile phone number, email address, name, date of birth and zip code.  You will be required to take a photo of your picture ID (such as a driver’s license), take a selfie, create a password and give consent several times for use of the application, use of facial recognition software and access to your personal data.  Once your account is set up, you will need to add your vaccination record in order to create your “Health Pass.”  This can be done by photographing your vaccination card (use a dark background) or by providing info about where you were vaccinated.  You will be asked for the dates and locations of your vaccinations.

It’s a lot of work up front to get set up, but once you have done that, it’s easy.  The registration will be good for any Bowdoin event for the duration of the Fall semester.  Just open the app, tap on the Bowdoin College icon and show the green screen with your name, photo and QR code to the attendant at any public lecture, performance or athletic event.
