The College is conferred with Autonomous Status, from June 2007 by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, the Government of Karnataka and the Karnatak University, Dharwad. With newly acquired academic and operative freedom, Lingaraj College is now offering programs of higher standard and has redesigned the syllabi according to the changes in the employment market.
The Autonomous Status to the college has enabled us to prepare our students thoroughly well in professional skills and make them competitive in the changing educational scenario of the country and the world. This has helped us to create higher degree of employability in our students. The College is affiliated to Rani Channamma University, Belagavi.
