We present with great pleasure and honour the history and information of Walchand College of Arts and Science, Solapur on this website.

Walchand College of Arts and Science, Solapur was established on 8th July, 1962. It is run by Shri Aillak Pannalal Digambar Jain Pathashala, Solapur, a sanstha established in 1885 by Shriman Seth Walchand, a pioneer in Indian Industry and developed by Shriman Seth Lalchand, a reputed educationist. The Pathashala has been working on the ‘Shraman Sanskruti’ philosophy. It has ‘SHIKSHAN HACH DHARMA’ for its motto. In keeping with this academic tradition, the college has been moulding its students into mature and responsible citizens in the light of the Panchasutri – Knowledge, Character, Love, Management and Service. We keep ourselves abreast of the latest developments around and allow the students to benefit from the new academic trends. We are well-equipped to meet the challenges in the 21st century. Our curriculum has a combination of both the archaic and advanced subjects in Prachya – Prakrut – Sanskrut to Information Technology. Ours is one of the ideal colleges with a rich academic tradition in Solapur District.

The college has been nourishing the ideal tradition of academic transactions and going to strength to strength in the last 54 years. The students of our college have been succeeding in all branches of education and elevating its reputation to new heights of excellence. The college boasts proficient teachers, efficient administrative staff and industrious menial staff. The backbone of the status of the college is its management. It has allowed the college a splendid and spacious building, advanced academic equipment and a big playground. It pleases me to inform that the college has been awarded A grade by NAAC due to its overall academic performance.

This is only a glimpse of the comprehensive information of our institute.
