As there was no College for Arts & Science in and around Pattukkottai exclusively for women, the Percentage of girls pursuing Collegiate Education was less. Trustees noted this unhealthy trend with concern and decided to convert this higher education forum as an exclusive center for women and consequently, college was converted as a women's college from the academic year 2008-2009. The Management of the college is providing the entire required infrastructure, besides offering additional courses in a phased manner.
