History of the College
Established after a decade and a half since India's attainment of freedom, Nowgong Girls' College has been providing facilities of higher education to women, especially of Central Assam. It is one of the oldest women's colleges in the state. At the time of its inception in a rented building on September 12, 1962, it was Nowgong Women's College. Subsequently, it was named Lal Chand Todi Girls' College after a munificent donor and it remained so for sometime. Finally, in 1966, it was styled Nowgong Girls' College and shifted to its own building at its present site. Since its very inception, the college has been taking care of the higher education for women in Central Assam. Keeping in view the fact that a considerable bulk of the population of Central Assam consists of poverty-ridden tribal communities and backward minorities, Nowgong Girls' College has taken up the stupendous task of awakening the people to the cause of higher education for women in general and the poor and the backward women in particular. Of the five districts of Central Assam, namely Marigaon, Nagaon, Golaghat, Karbi Anglong and N. C. Hills, which constitute the catchment area of Nowgong Girls' College, the first one is a plain-tribe district and the last two are hill-tribe districts. That, thanks to its pivotal contribution to the cause of women's higher education, the college has made its existence felt beyond the state is borne out by the fact that in recent years quite a number of girls from Arunachal Pradesh have enrolled themselves as students of this college.
