North Lakhimpur College (Assamese: উত্তৰ লখিমপুৰ মহাবিদ্যালয়) is an autonomous college, affiliated to Dibrugarh University in North Lakhimpur on the north bank of the Brahmaputra river in upper Assam. The college was established in 1952. In 2012, North Lakhimpur College was accredited with an "A" grade by the NAAC with a CGPA of 3.08.[1][2] On 30 May 2013, North Lakhimpur College received a letter from the University Grants Commission granting it the status of an autonomous college. North Lakhimpur College is the first college from Assam to receive this status from the UGC.[3][4]


The North Lakhimpur College is the oldest and premier institution of higher education in upper Assam. It was established on 3 July 1952 at North Lakhimpur, which was recognized as a backward and remote area. The college was a fruit of the efforts and zeal of a core group of far-sighted people in particular and the people of this vast region in general.


The aim of the college is to throw the light of education and to help develop human resources. However, its objective is also to open the windows for noble thoughts to enlighten the institute. It wants to ensure all-round academic and intellectual development of the students by giving them the concept of purity of knowledge. North Lakhimpur College is, therefore, built around the principle of benevolence providing the students and teachers as many ingredients of perfection as possible within its limitations.
