Admission Notices

    The college has been contributing to the cause of Women’s education in North Coastal Andhra unstintingly for the past fifty years, since its inception on 7th July 1958,
    St. Joseph’s College for Women (recognized by the UGC in January, 1960) was granted the Autonomous status in July 1987.

    St. Joseph’s College for Women (Autonomous), a Catholic minority institution, is managed by the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Annecy, France. The congregation runs old age home, a nursing home, schools, crèche, orphanages and dispensaries in several parts of Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Kerala.

    In the 1950s, Visakhapatnam did not have any facility for the higher education of young women. So impressed were the public of Visakhapatnam with the service rendered by the Sisters that, in 1957, a group of prominent citizens requested the Sisters of St. Joseph to undertake the task of setting up an institution of higher learning for the young women of the city. The college, affiliated to Andhra University, was founded on 7th July 1958, with six members of teaching staff and 28 students in the Pre-University course. The college was set up to serve the interests of the young women of Visakhapatnam and continues to do so with no thought of commercial gain. The emphasis then was on the teaching of Domestic Science but the college has since then diversified and developed to cater to the changing needs and aspirations of the young women. The college is now a grant-in-aid institution, with a campus area of 7.5 acres and student strength of 1250, offering four Intermediate courses, eight Undergraduate courses in BA, B.Com and B.Sc and four Postgraduate courses.

    The temporal plan of academics is through the Semester system consisting of 110 working days, of which 90 are teaching days. The infrastructure with reference to laboratory, library and others is functional and aesthetically satisfying. The library is open 8 hrs. a day for all the 110 working days of the semester. It houses more than 25,000 books and subscribes to international as well as national journals and periodicals. The support services available in the college include Hostel, Workshop, Sports facilities, Canteen, Vehicle parking shed, Guestrooms and Student Welfare Schemes.The college is a member of the All India Association of Christian Higher Education as also the Xavier Board and utilizes the facilities of these agencies for training the faculty.
