BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
In 1992, many students who passed the Pre-University Examination in Mizoram could not pursue further studies because the existing colleges in Aizawl at that time were unable to accommodate them all. To solve this problem initiative was taken by the student body of the state and Mr. K. Biakthianghlima (currently associate professor, Dept. of Mizo) to establish a new college that will cater to the needs of these students. Mr. T.Romana was approached who generously donated a sum of one lakh rupees and permitted the use of his private building for the establishment of the new college. Hence, on June 3, 1992, a new private college was established and named 'T. ROMANA COLLEGE' after the name of its donor Mr T.Romana.
With Mr Remkunga as the first Principal, the College got the government permission to start the Pre University Course in 1993. In 1995, under Dr J.V.Hluna as the Principal the college got permission for Degree Courses in six subjects. Two more subjects - Public Administration and Sociology were introduced later in 1997.
The College has been growing under the guidance of various Principals who served the College with dedication.

The enrolment of students in the college reached its peak in the 1999-2000 session with 1619 students.
The college was granted affiliation by North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) in 1995. The college is now affiliated to the Mizoram University which came into being in 2001. It came under grant-in-aid scheme from 2002. In 2007 the College was accredited C++ by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and in the same year it was granted permanent affiliation by the Mizoram University and recognized by UGC under 2f & 12B provisions of UGC Act.
T.Romana College still stands as an institution which happily accommodates economically and academically disadvantaged students, offers concession of fees to some, exempts others and renders all possible help. Therefore the College is often known as ‘the College of Grace’.
