If the dipoles of a vsper model cancel out then the molecule would be non-polar. However if the dipoles don't cancel out then the molecule is polar. You can figure out the dipoles by looking at the electronegativity of each element.
This has to do with cis and trans configuration. If the dipole bonds are on the same side of the molecule [cis], then its polar. If the bonds are on opposite sides of the molecule [trans] , it's nonpolar because they cancel!
