MyAid opens November 18, 2014 for prospective applicants:


Important information:

a)     You can enter your Student Aid portal the day after you enter your Admission portal – “Polaris”.  Because we share the same “Student ID”, it can take up to 24 hours for us to initiate your MyAid access.

b)    Your MyAid Student ID is the same as your Polaris Student ID.  You will establish your PIN by selecting "First Time User" and following the instructions provided.

c)     Once you enter MyAid, the “tabs” at the top of the page provide guidance on available information.

d)    If you have any issues entering MyAid, you can write to us at sao@bowdoin.edu.  For identification purposes, please provide us with your name and address listed on your admission application.



For Currently Enrolled Students:


To access MyAid, enter your Bowdoin ID (B####) and the PIN you established for this portal. If you have forgotten your PIN, you can click the “forgot my PIN” link in the Log In box or email us at sao@bowdoin.edu and we will re-set it for you.
