The school was established in 1927 in Nanjing as the Kuomingtang's Central School of Party Affairs. In 1929, it was renamed to Central School of Governance, after the "Northern Expedition" victory of the Nationalists in mainland China. In 1946, Central School of Governance emerged with the Central School of Cadre in Chongqing, and the National Central University of Governance was formally founded in Nanjing, signifying the end of the Second Sino-Japanese War. When the Nationalist government lost control of mainland China in 1949, the university's activities were suspended.
The university was relocated to Taiwan in 1954 as National Chengchi University in Taipei by the Executive Yuan in order to meet the senior civil service need and to meet the growing demands of higher education in post-war Taiwan. Initially only graduates students were admitted, but later in 1955, undergraduate students began to be admitted. In 1960, the university awarded the first Doctor of Juridical Science degree in Taiwan under the provisions of the Degree Conferral Law. In 1964, the school initiated the first Chinese MBA program.
