Students Entering Fall 2020

The Registrar’s Office joins others in welcoming you to Bates. We are here to assist you in registering for courses and preparing for fall semester. Bates students enjoy 24-hour online access to their records through a secure Bates web site called the Garnet Gateway. This summer you will use the Garnet Gateway to register for your fall courses.

Students should read the registration overview. The FAQ page is also packed with information. Please contact us with any questions by phoning 207-755-5949  or emailing We look forward to working with you as you join the Bates College community!
