The University of Massachusetts Amherst is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). The last comprehensive accreditation review took place in 2009, and the CIHE voted to continue the campus's accreditation on March 4, 2010. In August of 2013, UMass Amherst submitted its fifth-year interim report. 

We are currently in the process of planning for our next comprehensive evaluation, which will take place in the fall of 2018.
