Rupahi College, located along the Nagaon Laokhowa road at a distance of 14 kilometres from Nagaon at the centre of Assam, was established in 1981. The Socioeconomic disadvantaged and marginalised people of all communities mainly of linguistic and religious minority communities inhabiting the vast rural hinterland bordering the Laokhowa Wild Life Sanctuary and the mighty Brahmaputra in the North- West of Nagaon aspired to have a college of their own. A few leading citizens and social workers of the area zealously pursued this cherished aim of educating the disadvantaged rural youth and specially the girls and women folk of the area getting a feel of the beckon light of higher education. Their endeavors led to the establishment of the college on 10th August, 1981. It developed as a single faculty Arts college with ten departments of studies, bringing under its fold both the H.S. and degree courses. It was brought under Deficit Grant-in-aid system by the Government of Assam in 1996.
