Williams is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. Williams’ accreditation is typically reviewed every ten years, with the most recent full round completed in 2008, and a standard interim review in 2012–13.

The college is currently producing its self-study for a new CIHE review during fall 2017 and winter 2018. As part of this process CIHE welcomes comments from our community and the general public. These should be submitted directly to the Commission—not to Williams College.
