The first batch of 30 students was admitted on 27 June, 1961 and interestingly no. of girls (17) was more than no. of boys (13). The majestic campus of this decades' old college is situated in the outskirts of Udhampur town on a hillock overlooking the Devika, the sacred Ganges of Jammu region. Since its inception the college has achieved major landmarks, and is at present one of the leading institutions of higher learning in the State of Jammu and Kashmir.

At present, the College provides instruction in the disciplines of Arts, Commerce, Science (Medical and Non-medical), BCA and BBA. We also offer two PG Courses i.e. PG English & PG Hindi. A sizable section of students joining this institution comes from such families that mainly depend on agriculture and are economically as well as socially weak. The College carefully caters to the educational needs of this particular section of the society, and puts in every effort to ensure a gradual and meaningful development of the students, both in curricular and extra-curricular domains.
