Colleges in the New England region have a regular ten-year cycle of review by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE), a division of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Amherst completed its most recent cycle in January 2009, when the president was notified by the CIHE that the college’s accreditation had been renewed on November 20, 2008.  In March 2013, the CIHE notified Amherst that the commission had accepted the college's interim report and provided a letter with the CIHE's findings. In accordance with its normal policy, the CIHE has scheduled Amherst for its ten-year comprehensive evaluation in spring 2018.  Amherst is currently preparing for the 2018 reaccreditation review.  A visiting committee will be on campus from April 15, 2018 through April 18, 2018.  A summary of completed and projected activities will be updated regularly and is available here.
