It is affifilaited to Tribhuvan University and supported by University Grants Commission of Nepal. This campus was established with aimed at imparting higher education for students who are unable to pursue their higher education in cities like Palpa, Butwal, and Kathmandu etc due to poor economic conditions of their parents.
Chandrakot campus is offering bachelor level programs in the stream of Management, Humanities and Social Sciences under the affiliation of Tribhuvan University (TU).
Chandrakot Campus aims at providing quality education at par with famous colleges located in the cities of the country. It is, however, a great uphill task at the present financial situation which hinders for employing highly qualified teaching faculties and establishment of physical infra-structures like teaching building, library and sports facilities.
Most of the boys students whose parents can afford to send their wards to the cities for pursuing college level education, so far most of the students registered in the campus are girls students whose parents are hesitant to send their daughters far away from home as well as due to their financial constraints. The establishment of this campus has fulfilled the aspirations of the economically poor and socially backward students, in particular girl’s students, who were deprived of higher education in the absence of a college in the region.
At present Chandrakot Campus is running classes temporarily in the building basically owned by Udaya Secondary School. Proposals have been submitted to the donor agencies for the construction of its own teaching building in 14 ropani land owned by it.
