However, the University could come into existence only after the achievement of independence.In 1949, the University was incorporated under the Gujarat University Act of the State Government 'as a teaching and affiliating University.'

ABOUT WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN COLLEGE

This prestigious Institution, meant for the development of downtrodden women of kanyakumari district has a long lasting tradition since the regime of Maharani of Travancore, Rani Gowri Parvathi Bai in the early 18th century. It is the campus where the pioneer educational institution was started in the Princely State of Travancore. Rev. Charles Mead, Father of South Travancore Mission came to Travancore in 1818. He made the tourist bungalow of Colonel Munro (the place where the present chapel is located) as the Head Quarters for his missionary work. In October 1819, he established the Mission Seminary, which became the first educational institution in Travancore. Mr. Mead wrote the following about the seminary to his church in England."This will rise, we hope, in time to a mission college for South India". His words came true in Febrauary 1893 when the seminary was raised to a second grade college named 'Nagercoil Christian College' which was affiliated to the University of Madras. At that time, 13 students (7 Christians and 6 Non-christians) got enrolled. With the donation given by Septimus Scott, a new two storey building was built (the present Chemistry-Zoology block) in 1889.Later the College was named after him as Scott Christian College. The main block was built in 1940.In 1970, Scott Christian College was shifted to the new campus in the Kottar-Parvathipuram Road.

Gnanadhason, was the founder Principal. This lush green campus which carries the sacred memories of the missionary work is situated in the center of the town. It was from this campus that the early Christian missionaries spread enlightenment to the areas around. Within a short span of forty years, this College has created a niche for itself by providing quality learning for the hoslistic development of the students.
