Dear Members of the Amherst Community,
I am pleased to report that we have received word from the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), which was previously known as the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), that Amherst’s accreditation has been continued. The report of February 1, 2019, is the final finding of NECHE for this round of accreditation and is available online. In accordance with its regular policy, NECHE has scheduled Amherst for an interim review in the spring of 2023 and for a comprehensive evaluation in the spring of 2028.
