Tezpur College, one of the premier colleges of Assam, came into existence in the year 1965 due to untiring efforts of Late Dulal Chandra Bhattacharjee, a doyen of teaching and legal community of Assam. He was also the founder president of the college. Started as an evening college for the benefit of poor students and housed in Tezpur Academy, the College was later shifted to the present site on the flank of the famous picturesque hillock of Agnigarh in 1968.
Besides the regular courses in B.A./B.Com. and Higher Secondary Arts and Commerce, the college also offers programs like BBA, BMC, TTM, B. Music. and M. Music. Introduction of different career-oriented courses, the establishment of the contact center of the IDOL, GU, and study center of KKHSOU is the result of the untiring effort put by the college for the development of higher education in the region. The college was first accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council in 2004.
