2015-16 Student Handbook

Welcome to the complete 2015-16 Amherst College Student Handbook. This website replaces the printed Student Handbook and serves as an updated collection of the College's rights and policies, along with information on the services offered through the different departments at Amherst.

Students are expected to read through both the printed Student Handbook In Brief distributed at the beginning of the year and the complete handbook as linked below. Questions about the content of this document, or any requests for section updates, should be submitted to the Office of Communications.

See the Amherst College Sexual Respect and Title IX site for additional information.
