Being affiliated to the Bharathiar University, the College follows the syllabi prescribed by the University. The course content is revised periodically by the University and the same is followed by the College. However within the framework, there is possibility of having options to choose in B.Sc. and B.Com. courses. The College offers B.Sc. in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science in the science stream and B.Com. with computer application in commerce. There are 2 P.G. courses - M.Com , M.Sc. ( Mathematics ) and M.Phil.(Commerce). A certificate course is also run in the College in collaboration with a software company. Students of commerce and computer science have better job opportunities and also can get self-employed. The main objective of certificate course is to equip the students for a career and this attempt deserves encouragement.
It is desirable that a few subjects in applied science such as Biotechnology, Microbiology and Electronics are introduced at U.G. for the benefit of those who are interested in the pursuit of higher studies.
Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation.
Admission to U.G. and P.G. courses are made on the basis of academic record at the qualifying examination and reservation policy of the State Government and norms fixed by the Bharthiyar University. After admission the educationally disadvantaged are identified and given additional coaching.
The College encourages to make a teaching plan. The HODs monitor the activities of their departments. The College monitors the overall performance of students at the beginning of the year through assignments, tests, etc. The evaluation methods are communicated in the beginning of the year itself. The records for award of marks are maintained well. Teachers are recruited by advertising in the media as per the regulations fixed by the Bharathiar University. The College has the freedom to appoint temporary / Adhoc teaching staff if need arises and the payment to such teachers is made by the Management. The teachers are paid consolidated salary based on their qualification and experience and the payment is made in cash.

The Management has provided required facilities for maintenance of the infrastructure on a regular basis.
