History[edit]

In the year 1963, when it is turned into a government institution, number of student seats in Carmichael College became limited. In this situation, the absence of a college proving education to the extended number of students is intensely felt. In this circumstance some philanthropists including Prof. Fulle Hossain, the then District Commissioner O.M. Carnie, Assistant District Commissioner Abdus Sattar, District Education Officer Tahemidur Rahman, advocate Abul Khan, Amin Hossain, Abul Salek, Moin Uddin Sarker et. el. come forward to set up a college. Some rich people also gave necessary land to establish the college immediately. Finally on July 25, 1963, it got established. Since its establishment till 1992, it was under the supervision of Rajshahi University. It becomes a government college on November 1, 1984. It came under Bangladesh National University in 1993.
