Polba Mahavidyalaya, the only General Degree College situated in Polba-Dadpur Block in the district of Hooghly in West Bengal , has embarked on its journey since 19th September,2005 with the much cherished objective of providing the scope and opportunity of higher education to the aspiring and prospective students of this block in particular and the students of the surrounding areas in general. This seat of higher learning, from the very beginning, is committed to providing for the access and scope of higher education to students of marginalized categories and backward communities in this Polba-Dadpur block which has been earmarked as a S.C. /S.T. concentrated block.
The location of the college at a junction between major railway stations like Bandel Junction, Mogra, Khanyan and major areas like Chinsurah and Mahanad provides it with the opportunity to strive towards providing greater services and achieving higher goals.
The college currently has seven honours departments along with two other subjects taught solely to B.A. General Students.
