About College

The American College, a higher education Institution is known for its academic excellence and social relevance. Its pioneering role in the development of College autonomy in India in 1978 and successful early implementation of the Choice Based Credit System under autonomy and its completion of 138 years of services bear testimony to the position that the college currently enjoys. Originally founded by the American Missionaries in 1841, The American College grew into a collegiate department in 1881 at Pasumalai by the initiatives taken by Rev.G.T.Washburn, the Founder-Principal of the college. In the year 1906, the college was shifted to the present campus during the time of the second Principal Rev.W.M.Zumbro. The college became independent of the mission in 1934 when an autonomous Governing council was formed to manage its own affairs. Earlier, it was affiliated to the University of Madras and later, it came under the jurisdiction of Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai.
