The school was established in 1927 in Nanjing, which was the capital city of China, as the Kuomintang's Central School of Party Affairs. In 1929, it was renamed to Central School of Governance, after the Kuomintang reunified China in the Northern Expedition campaign. The school was built on the basis of National Central University in Nanjing, which was the highest academic institution of Republic of China. In 1946, it merged with the Central School of Cadre, which was founded in 1944 by the Youth Corps of Three People's Principles in Chongqing. The merged school was named the National Central University of Governance, based in Nanjing. When the Nationalist government lost control of mainland China in 1949, the university's activities were suspended.
The university was reopened in 1954 as National Chengchi University in Taipei by the Executive Yuan, in order to meet the needs of civil service and the growing demands of higher education in post-war Taiwan. Initially only graduates students were admitted, but in 1955, undergraduate students began to be admitted. In 1960, the university awarded the first Doctor of Juridical Science degree in Taiwan. In 1964, the school initiated the first Chinese Master of Business Administration program.
As an incubator for civil service, NCCU is considered one of the most important institutions of the Republic of China, along with the Republic of China Military Academy, which is a prestigious incubator for military leaders. Today, the school is one of the top universities in the Taiwan, and it also has been elected as the "Aim for the Top University Project" sponsored school of the Ministry of Education.
