The Maratha Mandal’s Arts, Commerce, Science and Home Science College was originally located in a 5.6 acres of land and an old building in the Fort in Cantonment area of the city. After shifting the engineering college which was located in the heart of the city to its new abode elsewhere, the three-storied building with a built up area of 2,958 square meters vacated by the college is allotted to the Arts, Commerce, Science and Home Science College by a resolution of the Managing Committee of the Maratha Mandal.
The College is a grant-in-aid institution affiliated to the Karnatak University, Dharwad. The College has got recognition under Section 2(f) of the UGC Act in October, 2002.
The College offers B. A., B. Com. and B. Sc. Degree courses.
