The American College is one of the institutions in higher education known for its focus on academic excellence and social relevance. Its pioneering role in the development of college autonomy in India, its successful

American College grew into a collegiate department in 1881. Earlier, it was affiliated to the University of Madras and later, it came under the jurisdiction of Madurai Kamaraj University. With its extreme sensitivity to national policies and community needs, the college has grown from strength to strength. It is one of the first set of seven colleges to be made autonomous by the UGC in 1977-1978.
Today, the college offers thirty-one undergraduate and seventeen postgraduate programmes. There are research centres offering M.Phil, and Ph.D programmes in various disciplines. The college was re-accredited (3rd Cycle) by NAAC with Grade “A+” CGPA– 3.47 on a 4 point scale in 2022. The College offers undergraduate self-financed programmes from the academic year 2015-16 in its Satellite Campus at Chattrapatti to cater to the city, rural and less privileged students of the community. The college has
tie-ups with many state, central and private industries and institutes. An MoU between the American College and Concordia College, New York enables the second-year UG students of select departments to complete
their degrees at Concordia College under American Transfer Programme (ATP).
