Tikapur Multiple Campus endowed with 380 Bighas of land. It has very limited resources, not sufficient to allocate sufficient funding in infrastructural development. Student's fee, contract amount, bank interest, grants from UGC, Tikapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (TCCI), Tikapur Municipality DDC, and Community Forest are major sources of revenue of the campus. Since these resources are limited and are not sustainable, we are economically poor due to increasing expenses.
TMC has been offering different programs in different shifts. At present, TMC is offering Bachelor Level in Management, Humanities, Education, and Science and one year B.Ed., Master Degree in education specializing in four subjects viz. Health, Nepali, English and Curriculum & Evaluation, Master Degree in Management (MBS) and Master's degree in Rural Development. The Campus has proposed for Bachelors program in Agriculture. A proposal for Letter of Intent (LoI) has recently been submitted to the Ministry of Education. TMC has its own entrance system, admission procedure, and internal assessment and extra- curricular activities for the holistic development of the students.
