Rajendra College, Chapra was established in the year 1938, Rajendra College, Chapra is affiliated to Jai Prakash University, Chapra
Rajendra College, Chapra is an important constituent unit of Jai Prakash University, Chapra and is named after the first President of Independent India, Deshratna Dr Rajendra Prasad.
It was established by the marathon endeavour of the two most respected persons of Chapra Dr Late Harihar Sharan and Dr Late Syed Mahmood Saheb, in the premises of Shah Banwari Lal Sarai on 01 august 1938. Teaching work started in the college from 15th.August 1938. It is a mere coincidence or a matter of pride that our country became independent on 15th August 1947, after nine years, on the same date on which teaching started in this college. Dr Rajendra Prasad, who was a professor in Langat Singh College, Muzaffarpur at that time, used to stay at chapra, while going to his village Jiradei. He used to discuss about opening a college in chapra with learned persons of region. Due to his inspiration, Dr Mahmood, Dr Harihar Sharan, Shri- Umanath , Shri Mahavir Prasad etc. started the process. There was a famous Shah Banwari Lal Sarai in the town, a huge campus built with an investment of Rs 3 lakhs, which was a huge amount at that time . Shah Banwari Lal, in a great act of charity and social service, donated this campus to the college.
In 1938 & 1939, for the first time Patna University granted affiliation for Intermediate Arts and Bachelor of Arts teaching, to Rajendra College. Consequently, Rajendra College became the first college to obtain the affiliation up to degree level. Again, in 1940 & 1942, Rajendra College got affiliation in Intermediate Commerce and Bachelor of Commerce. It is a matter of pride that the education of commerce stream started from Rajendra College in Bihar. Similarly, in 1944 & 1949, Rajendra College has the pride of being the first college, where education in all three streams arts, science & commerce was being imparted up to graduation level.
Bihar University came into existence in 1952. This newly born university granted affiliation for honours teaching in Hindi & Economics. Gradually, college also got affiliation for imparting honours in other subjects as well. Today, Rajendra College has become a seat & centre of academic activities for providing education up to honours & post graduate level in different subjects like Hindi, Economics, Political Science, History, English, Philosophy, Psychology, Urdu, Sanskrit, Geography & different disciplines of science like Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Zoology and Botany. In order to provide job oriented education, the college has started different vocational courses like BCA, BBA, Bio-Tech & BJMC.

Afterwards, on 21st.Sept. 1939, Manoranjan Prasad Sinha became the principal of this college. Prior to this, he has been a renowned teacher of BHU in English and a reputed poet in Hindi & Bhojpuri.
The period of Prof Manoranjan Prasad Sinha is considered as golden era for this college. It is to his credit, that science block, gymnasium, library & other buildings came into being by his grace & effort.
After the retirement of Manoranjan Prasad Sinha, Shri IH Rizvi became the professor-in-charge. After him, the college got a new principal Bhola Prasad Singh, under whose tenure; the college became a constituent unit of Bihar University on 1st.Jan. 1967. Unfortunately, Bhola Prasad Singh died on 26th.April. 1971 and Dr Murlidhar Srivastava, the then vice-principal became professor-in-charge.
Afterwards, Dr Binay Kumar became principal Professor-in-charge on 12th.July. 1971. Later on, he became full fledged principal of this college.

This meet was memorable because several ministers, legislators, former vice-chancellors, & high officials participated in it and shared their memoirs relating to this college.

Different private companies have been invited to ensure employment for the competent students of this college.
