Rupahi College, located along the Rupahi-Laokhowa road at a distance of 14 kilometers from the District head quarter Nagaon, was established in 1981. The Socio-economic disadvantaged and marginalized 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 women folk of the area getting a feel of the beacon 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.

The college got UGC recognition under section 2f & 12B in 5 May/ 2008. The college was accredited by NAAC with Grade C+ in 2004. In its report it appreciated the college authority, Staff, Students, Alumni, Guardians and public of the locality in their role of developing the only institution of higher education in the area. Seeing the vast potentiality of the institution, it is wished by the NAAC team that the College will have a promising future provided if all wings connected to the college come together in true spirit and dedication for its development. The college volunteered to be assessed by NAAC, Bangalore for its 2nd cycle and submitted its SSR for the purpose. The NAAC Peer Team visited the college on 15th to 17th October 2015 for validating the Self Study Report and awarded ‘B’ grade with 2.63 CGPA on 15th November 2015. As per suggestion of NAAC the College opened MA in Arabic in 2016, B.Sc (Major & General) in 2017 followed by B.Com in 2018.
