Login to Polaris using your Bowdoin username and password. Polaris can be accessed anywhere you have an Internet connection.
If your job requires you to look up student information (e.g., address, advisor), you will have access to the “Student Lookup” portal tab shown beneath the word “Polaris.” You will see a search box in which you can type a student’s ID or his/her first or last name. Note: You can type in all or part of the first or last name but not both, e.g., "John" or "Smith" but not "John Smith." Press return after typing in the search box, and the system will find students that match your criteria. From the results list, click on the student to view his/her details. To look up students who have graduated or resigned from the college be sure to select "All Students" from the search pull down menu before typing in a first name, last name or ID.
