You have to look at the electronegativities of the atoms. In a bond, one atom's electrons will be pulled towards the atom that has a greater electronegativity, resulting in a net partial charge. Do this for each atom. If all of the attached atoms are the same and their partial charges cancel out, then it is non polar. Many times when the attached atoms are not the same, it may be polar. You also have to look at the partial charges as well and see if they cancel out.
