This web page is intended to serve as a resource for members of the Amherst College community so that they may conveniently access certain policies with broad applicability.

This repository also is a work-in-progress and, moreover, is not intended to contain all Amherst College policies. For additional policies, please consult the following: Student Code of ConductFaculty Handbook and/or the Staff Handbook; and the Course Catalog.

You also may find helpful information on the divisional and departmental websites for the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of Human Resources, Office of the Provost and Dean of the Faculty, as well as other departments on campus.

Amherst College departments that intend to include any of these policies on their departmental website should link to the same version that is linked on this web page so as to avoid multiple (and potentially inconsistent) versions of a policy being presented on the College’s website. To suggest additional policies for inclusion on this web page, or edits to a policy included on this list, or if you have any additional questions or comments, please contact
