One of the leading institutions of higher education in Darrang district, Sipajhar College has come a long way since its inception in 1971. The need for an institution of higher education in Sipajhar was keenly felt by the intellectuals of the area as many talented youngsters of the area had to abandon their dreams of higher education due to financial constraints. Lack of availability of sufficient government land for setting up a college was a stumbling block which was overcome by the large-hearted and generous people of the area who came forward to donate their agricultural land for setting up the college. Situated at an easily accessible location along the National Highway 52, the College has been able to provide a sustainable momentum to the efforts to provide quality education to the student community of the area. From its humble beginnings in the Diamond Club premises and teachers with virtually no salary, Sipajhar College has come a long way. Starting out with just Pre-university classes in 1971, and Degree Classes in 1980, Sipajhar College, which celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 1997, has contributed significantly to the academic and cultural life of the region. With its alumni adorning responsible and respectable positions in society the college has been able to fulfil most of what it set out to do. Sipajhar College has also been rendering yeoman service in the sphere of women education, a field in which the area was lagging behind before its establishment. Permanently affiliated to the Gauhati University the college was brought under the Deficit Grant in Aid system of the Government of Assam in 1986 and is registered under 2(f) and 12B of the UGC since 1996.The college was "provincialised" by the Government of Assam in December 2005 by the Assam College Provincialisation Act.
To enrich the society through academic advancement and instilling proper attitudes and values needed for the holistic development of each and every student.
The college which was established with the vision of making quality education accessible to the economically disadvantaged student community of the greater Sipajhar area aspires to nurture and promote the potential of its students to the fullest possible extent.
