The Women’s College, Tinsukia came into being in 1966 on the auspicious day 9 July. A handful of visionaries viz. the Late Anath Bandhu Bose, Late Shanti Ranjan Bhattacharjee, Late Prithwish Chandra Bhadury etc. with unstinted support of academicians like Late Subodh Chandra De Sorcar were behind the genesis of the College. Eminent educationist the Late Uma Prasanna Dey was the founder principal of the College with 78 students on roll as the first batch. The auspicious occasion was blessed by the Late Dr. Indira Miri the revered educationist and pioneer of women empowerment in Assam.

A full-fledged study centre of the IGNOU and one Distance Education centre of the Dibrugarh University housed in the institution offer various courses at distance mode to aspiring students.
