The roots of the college can be traced to a pre-partition temporary college at Dadanchak (presently under Shibganj Police Station in the district of Nawabganj, Bangladesh). In mid-1943, a report was published in one of the popular local newspapers appealing the public of Maldah district to donate in order to establish the estimated fund of 300,000 Rupees, required to change the Dadanchak College's location to Malda. The much-needed land was given by Mr. Jadunandan Choudhury and Mr. Asutosh Choudhury. In a very little time, the people of Malda donated the estimated sum, which helped start the initial work for shifting. On 1 May 1944, the University of Calcutta granted affiliation to Malda College and on 23 July 1944 the college was officially established by the then District Magistrate of English Bazar, Mr. W. H. Saumarez Smith, as an "Intermediate Arts and Commerce College", with eight teachers and 150 students. In the founding phase, the College was affiliated to teach English, Vernacular Bengali, Philosophy, Economics, History, and Sanskrit. In 1952, the college moved from its original rented building at the present-day Atul Market-area, Malda, to a new building at Rathbari More, Malda, in a large compound. Two auditoriums were built in 1994, commemorating the golden jubilee celebrations.
