Enrollment Form

Each semester, all students complete the Enrollment Form to verify their presence on campus and, if applicable, make changes to personal and directory information. This form may be accessed using a computer or mobile phone, but works best on campus.

The Fall 2022 Enrollment Form is due by 9/6/22 at 5pm: 


  1. From a computer or mobile device, log in using your Bowdoin username and password.

  2. Once logged in, navigate through five or six screens of information.

  3. Review the information and make any needed changes to personal and directory information.

  4. The Enrollment Form will only be successfully submitted after every screen is reviewed.

  5. Click the "Submit" button at the end.

    • Note that information updated via the Enrollment Form will appear in Polaris within 24 hours.
  6. A confirmation email will be sent after successful completion.

    • If you do not receive a confirmation email, check your spam/junk/other folders. If the email is not there, then you did not successfully submit the form and should navigate back to the url and click submit.

  7. Save the confirmation email as evidence of completion. 

Deadlines and Reminders:

The deadline to submit is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 6.

  • Students who fail to submit by the deadline will be dropped from all classes and assessed a $50 late fee. Students will lose access to course materials in Canvas and be removed from the class email list. There is no guarantee that students will be able to re-register for the courses as the vacated seats will not be held and will become available for other students to add. Students dropped from classes must obtain "Instructor Permission" through Polaris and then add those courses in Polaris prior to the Add/Drop II deadline: 5:00 pm on Wednesday, September 14.

  • If the Enrollment Form is not received by 5:00 pm on Monday, September 12, a block will be put on ID card functions, including a block on residence hall access, dining service, and library privileges.

  • After 12:00 pm on Monday, September 19, any student who has not submitted an Enrollment Form will be put on an involuntary leave of absence and asked to leave the College
