Bongaigaon College is a higher educational institution in Bongaigaon, Assam, India. It was founded in August 1964.
The college had its beginning thanks to a concerted enterprise and initiative of a host of starry-eyed, socially conscious individuals, most notably late Sitanath Brahmachowdhury, ex-M.P. and ex-president of Assam Sahitya Sabah, the late Bhabeswar Chowdhury, and the late Damodar Mahanta. The college was accorded the status of deficit grants-in-aid in 1972 by the Government of Assam.
Before this the college had run on a self-sustaining basis with many teachers preferring to embrace the nobility of the profession, turning their backs on lucrative opportunities elsewhere. In the formative stages the college offered pre-university (Arts) programme. A full-fledged pre-university Commerce course started in 1984.
The undergraduate arts classes got underway in 1966-67 session and the programme got affiliation from Gauhati University in 1971. The Degree Commerce classes started in 1978.
Bowing to the public demand for postgraduate course in English, the college authority took steps to begin the two-year PG course in 1991. Immediately afterwards Gauhati University granted affiliation to the PG programme. Since 2002 the PG course in English is running on semester system.
