Pioneer Kumaraswamy College, affiliated to Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli, is a state-aided College of Arts and Science. The College is co-educational, offering UG and PG academic programmes in aided and self-financed modes. The College was started by Pioneer Kumaraswamy Educational Agency, Nagercoil to offer higher education to the marginalized and the underprivileged sections of society in and around that region and has been functioning since 1967. The founders of the College Dr. K. Padmanabhan and his beloved wife Smt. N. Bhagavathy Ammal named the institution after the latter’s illustrious father Thiru. Pioneer S. Kumaraswamy, who hailed from a humble beginning but turned out to be a successful entrepreneur in the region. The commitment to serve the poor and the deprived has sustained the endeavours of Dr. K. Padmanabhan’s family and today if the college is what it is, it is because of the untiring efforts of the incumbent president of the College Management Er. P. Kumaraswamy, the only son of Dr. Padmanabhan.

The Management’s persistent efforts have resulted in getting affiliation to the college for the conduct of UG and PG courses. The conducive academic climate, a dedicated team of teaching and non-teaching staff and consistently good academic performance of the institution have facilitated introduction of nine UG, three PG, one M. Phil (Commerce) courses, four UGC-funded Career Oriented Programmes, a coaching programme for students’ “Entry into Services” and one Remedial programme. There are ten departments, with Botany, and Tamil (SF) as supportive departments. There are 62 teachers (Regular- 38 and SF- 24) for 1335 students, resulting in a healthy teacher-student ratio of 1: 22.
