Welcome to the Registrar & Academic Systems Office

Important Winter Semester Update

As noted in the announcement from Clayton Spencer dated Dec. 7, 2020, Bates will extend its winter break by approximately one month, welcoming students back to campus on Friday, Feb. 12. Please see the updated 2020–21 Bates academic calendar.

Following health and safety protocols, Bates College employees are working remotely during the COVID-19 crisis and the Registrar’s office is closed to visitors. We will be monitoring and responding to phone, email, and U.S. mail as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience. 

We are here for any questions or concerns and may be reached by phone at 207-755-5949 or better yet, email – registrar@bates.edu. We wish everyone well as we proceed through these challenging times.

The Registrar’s Office maintains the permanent academic record of all Bates students. We communicate and interpret academic policy and procedures to students, faculty and staff and provide academic and enrollment services to the Bates community.
