Pocker Sahib Memorial Orphanage College was established in July 1968 as an aided junior college, affiliated with the University of Kerala under the management of the Tirurangadi Muslim Orphanage Committee (Regd.) Consequent to the University re-organization, the college came under the University of Calicut in the same year. It was upgraded to a first-grade college in 1972 and a Post Graduate College in 1980.
