HSC Program At Naogaon Govt. College

Besides, the higher secondary education (HSC) program is running at the college under the Rajshahi Education Board. Higher secondary level students tend to get admission in this college. However, after passing higher secondary exams, most of the students do not get admission in the graduate and honors courses of these colleges. Rather, they get admission in universities or colleges located in the capital Dhaka or neighboring divitional city, Rajshahi.

In 1996, the govt. introduced Honors and Masters programs at this college for the first time in Naogaon district, under the affiliation of the National University, Bangladesh. At that time, the college authorities started naming the college as ‘Naogaon University College’. Controversy arose over this nomenclature. But currently, only ‘Naogaon Government College’ is being written on all the plaques.
