Sahyadri Arts & Commerce College, Shimoga was established in 1940 with 105 students and nine faculty members as an intermediate college. In 1956-57 the college was upgraded into First Grade College with the introduction of B.A. and B.Sc. programmes. The strength of the college increased by leaps and bounds at regular intervals. Therefore, it became necessary to bifurcate the erstwhile Sahyadri College into Sahyadri Arts College and Sahyadri Science College in December 1984. Later, B.Com. programme was introduced in 1988. With a view to develop Sahyadri Arts and Commerce College and Sahyadri Science College as model colleges, the university requested the Government of Karnataka to transfer these colleges to university in 1991. Accordingly the Government transferred these colleges to university.
