Department of Collegiate Education, with its inception in the year 1960, has been striving to make quality higher education affordable and accessible to all
sections of students. With a firm concern for the overall development of the students, the Department has been taking keen interest to see that students
belonging to the most backward communities, women and rural students are not deprived of the accessibility to tertiary education.

offices located at Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Shimoga,Dharwad and Gulbarga.
