Special Features for Degree Courses

  1. Autonomy
    In 1988, Andhra Loyola College was granted autonomy by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, for its excellent contribution to the field of higher education. As an autonomous college, the college devises its own courses in keeping with the changing scenario of higher education, and frames its own curriculum to suit the needs of local community and for better employment opportunities of students. The College also conducts its own examinations and declares the results on line at the College website: Acharya Nagarjuna University awards the Degrees.

  2. NAAC Accreditation & CPE status
    The College has been accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore at the **** level and in 2004, the College was selected as the only college in the Acharya Nagarjuna University and one of the six colleges in the Andhra Pradesh State for the covetous title of "A COLLEGE WITH POTENTIAL FOR EXCELLENCE (CPE)". The UGC has come forward with a grant of Rs One Crore towards the development of the infra structure of the College.

  3. Semester System
    The College has adopted the semester system. The academic year consists of two semesters, each with 90 working days. The Odd Semesters (I, III & V) are from July to November, and the Even Semesters (II. IV & VI) are from December to April.

  4. Change in College Timing
    After the successful trial for one academic year, the College Management has decided to go in for a change in the college timing. From the academic year 2005-2006 onwards, classes will commence at 8.15 AM and will be over at 1.30 PM with a 20 minute break between the III and IV periods. This will enable all students to opt for career-oriented certificate courses in the afternoon. This system also creates abundant opportunities for students to go in for part-time jobs in the afternoon, if students so desire.

  5. English for communicative skills
    With a special accent on communicative skills, the syllabus for General English for I & II year students has been thoroughly revamped and redesigned. With the new system of 'Streaming', students are streamlined according to their standard of English into three categories, with each stream having its own curriculum, pedagogy, and evaluation.

  6. Two Mid-Semester tests, assignments & marks for attendance are part of the Continuous Internal Assessment (CIA) system for which 50% of marks in each subject are allotted. The other 50% are allotted for the Semester End Examinations (SEE).

  7. Project work is compulsory for all the final year degree students in order to expose them to the fascinating world of research and also to develop in them a problem-solving approach.

  8. Adequate importance is given to Extra Curricular Activities like sports & games, cultural events, essay writing competitions, etc.

  9. Extension Service
    Stress on service-orientation and social responsibility remains a significant component of our educational thrust. All first year students will put in 50 Hours of community service under the scheme ALERT. It is a mandatory requirement of the Degree Course.

  10. For the Degree students, a weeklong cultural festival called "Sphoorti" is organised to bring out their hidden talents through inter-collegiate competitions.

  11. Participation in co-curricular activities like NCC & NSS is compulsory. The College has all the three wings of NCC: Army, Navy & Air Wing and three divisions of NSS.

  12. Religious Instruction for Christian students and Value Education for all others are part of the curriculum.

  13. Career Guidance & Student counselling facilities are available in the campus.

  14. The Mentor system is being introduced so that the staff can monitor the academic and psychological growth of students and also to accompany their wards towards emotional maturity.

  15. Deans of Arts, Science, & Student Affairs help the College administration towards the smooth running of the CBCS.

  16. The College has a 51-year long unique history of combining the relevant academic programme with a student-oriented, disciplined, well balanced, socially committed and eco-friendly atmosphere in the vast campus. A galaxy of former students like Dr.Y.S Raja Sekhar Reddy, the Hon'ble Chief Minister of A.P along with a galaxy of alumni and alumnae speaks volumes of the great traditions of this noble institution.

  17. Amenities for students
    For the convenience of students, Internet Browsing, photocopying, telephone facilities at affordable rates are available within the campus. Emergency Medical Service is within the reach. As per the order from the AP State Government, use of cellphone in the campus is banned.

  18. Special facilities for girl students
    As part of the College's commitment to the cause of the women's empowerment, ALC admits girl students into most of the UG and all PG courses. Women's Cell, Girls' Waiting Room, Exclusive NSS & NCC Units are available for girls. Special encouragement is given to girls for Sports/Games/Cultural activities, etc for their active participation in the extra-curricular life of the College.
